The Pleasant Pops folks are taking a quick break from opening their first brick-and-mortar location in Adams Morgan to team up with the Climate Reality Project for a cooling popsicle giveaway at multiple DC locations this week.

Free flavors include peach-hibiscus, watermelon-mint, and strawberry-ginger lemonade. In order to get yours, tweet a message with your environmental woes using the hashtag #ImTooHot, or do the same thing with a Facebook post. A bonus for all you ER fans: Actress Gloria Reuben—fictional HIV-positive doctor Jeanie Boulet, real-life environmental activist—is on board the truck Thursday and Friday to raise awareness.
