Clean Air Commute 2012: June 18-24
The Clean Air Commute is an annual event organized by Pollution Probe that encourages workplace commuters to choose more sustainable modes of transportation rather than driving to work alone. Its aim is to improve local air quality and reduce local traffic congestion, and in so doing, promote employee health and happiness.
Celebrating its 20th year, the 2012 Clean Air Commute is a week of fun and friendly competition among workplaces to show how much you ♥ clean air! During the week, employees walk, cycle, take public transit, carpool, telecommute — one even kayaked last year! — to and from work to help improve the air we breathe. Last year, approximately 19,000 employees from 189 workplaces participated, preventing the release of more than 480 tonnes of air pollution over one week.
