Slide 2 is July Eco ChallengeJULY ECO-CHALLENGE: Eco-Transportation

Can you reduce your fossil fuel transportation this month, and beyond?

It’s July.  The weather is nice and the days are long.  Let the sunshine and warmth motivate you to ditch the car (or maybe carpool) and/or use an alternative way of transportation.  

If you’re considering buying a car, explore options with high fuel economy, or car share alternatives.

Close to work?  Make some extra time to walk, smell the flowers, and enjoy some fresh air. Grab your bike and hit the many bike lanes, bike paths, or even roads.

Not so close ?   Maybe carpooling is an option for you, your co-worker, or neighbor.  Public transportation has many routes and is accessible from most locations.

Going out?   Headed out for dinner, play, hike?  No matter what the occasion (mostly), there’s an alternative option for you.
