Win free green electricity for a year with Disneynature's 'The Crimson Wing'


To celebrate the release of Disneynature’s first ever film,
The Crimson Wing, Ecotricity and Disneynature are giving you a chance to make your electricity bill take flight with a year's free green electricity.

Set to a score by the Cinematic Orchestra, The Crimson Wing tells the story of a remote and forgotten wilderness, where one of nature’s last great mysteries unfolds: the birth, life and survival of a million crimson-winged flamingos. Against the dramatic backdrop of unforgiving, never-before-filmed landscapes, the film follows the birth of a tiny flamingo hatchling and the perils and fortunes of her life in the extraordinary "other world" of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania.

Ecotricity is an electricity company with a difference - dedicated to changing the way electricity is made. They take the money their customers spend on electricity and invest it in clean forms of power like wind energy. Switching to a green energy supplier is simple, quick and doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. For more information, please visit

Disneynature is a label dedicated to working with leading filmmakers to produce one cutting-edge theatrical release each year celebrating the wonders of the natural world. In the great tradition established by Walt Disney himself, Disneynature will offer spectacular entertainment about the world in which we live.
