Clear the Air Challenge; more participants, less vehicle emissions

SALT LAKE CITY – Clean air is a top concern for the citizens of Utah, and rightly so. The nature of the state’s climate and geography creates high levels of pollution several days each year.

However, Utahns are making an impact in improving air quality together. Over four summers, the statewide Clear the Air Challenge and its participants have saved over 5.2 million vehicle miles, with the goal of making 2013 the best year yet.

The challenge runs July 1-31 and there is still time to register. Whether you’re heading up a team with friends or getting your company to take the challenge, the tools to get you started and help motivate others can be found on the challenge website.

The goals of the challenge are to:

  • Eliminate 300,000 vehicle trips
  • Save 2 million vehicle miles driven
  • Engage 10,000 participants

By simply eliminating a few vehicle trips throughout your week, you can make a big difference in your community, all while competing for weekly prizes, grand prizes and statewide recognition.

The challenge is open to all citizens interested in smarter alternatives to pollution. You can take the challenge as an individual, team or company. Now is the time for you to help make a difference.
