For those who haven’t heard about the People’s Climate March in New York City this Sunday, here’s some important information, according to the organizers: It will be massive, maybe the largest gathering of its kind, and history-making. The many environmental and labor groups behind the march have put ads on the city’s subways, as well as in the New York Times. They’re calling for “a prosperous, low-carbon future” before next week’s United Nations Climate Summit.

The public-relations effort is impressive. Given that, it’s probably not too surprising that a few companies have joined in.
