2012 Clear The Air Challenge

The Clear the Air Challenge (ClearTheAirChallenge.org) is a month-long competition (August 1st-31st) that encourages Utahns to “Drive Less, Drive Smarter” to help improve air quality. Participants commit to reducing their weekly vehicle trips by using options like trip chaining errands, carpooling, telecommuting, walking, biking, or condensed work schedule. By using the TravelWise Tracker on their website, individuals, teams and companies can track their impact in terms of vehicle trips, miles, emissions, dollars and gallons of gas saved. During the Challenge, weekly prizes from sponsors are awarded to active participants as an incentive for reaching their weekly goals. Once the challenge is complete, the most outstanding participants, teams, and businesses are highlighted and several grand prizes are awarded. Over the past three Challenges, participants have saved over 3.6 million miles and 6.2 million pounds of emissions. To Register Go To: ClearTheAirChallenge.org
