Join the Salt Lake Chamber, UCAIR and TravelWise this Friday, as we kickoff the 10th Annual Clear the Air Challenge. The Challenge, issued by business, government and community leaders, is a month-long competition designed to encourage Utahns to reduce their vehicle emissions by choosing alternatives to driving alone.
We know transportation emissions are responsible for nearly fifty percent of the pollutants that make up our poor air quality. By reducing vehicle trips, we can protect our health, environment, economy and quality of life. That’s why participants of the Clear the Air Challenge use TravelWise strategies like carpooling, using public transit, teleworking, trip chaining, and walking or riding a bike or scooter to reduce their emissions and help clear up our air.
Since the Challenge started in 2009, participants have helped make a big difference in improving Utah’s air quality. In that time, more than a million trips have been eliminated, 15 million miles were saved, 5,000 tons of emissions were reduced and $6.5 million was saved.
Help us get the word out and make this year’s Challenge an even bigger success.
