Excellent way to conserve water & keep your ride lookin' fly! Pamper your ride even more by giving it a break & taking a "no-drive day" once a week. Catch a ride with friends or colleagues, try transit, walk on short trips to help our climate & keep the air healthy to breathe.

Just because you can't see it - doesn't mean it isn't there. Idling engines pollute the air. Turn the engine off and go inside to check your phone or instead of idling in the drive thru lane. Healthy Air Is In Our Hands.

Healthy air is key to a healthy community. We breathe in about 3,000 gallons of air a day! Small changes made by enough of us will add up to healthier air for all. Conserve electricity- use a fan & increase AC temperature by one degree. Idle less- turn off the engine & go inside.
