Cool School Commutes for Earth Day
Original post made by going green with kids, Evergreen Park, on Apr 19, 2008
Next week at PAUSD elementary and middle schools, Earth Day celebrations
will focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the number of vehicles used to drive students to and from school each day. Students and families will have the opportunity to pledge to choose alternative modes of transportation like walking, biking, riding the bus or carpooling for their school commute at least once a week.
At many schools, large black balloons will illustrate the volume of greenhouse gases emitted in a typical daily roundtrip school commute. The purpose is to encourage creative family and school community discussions about how to leave the car at home or share the ride more often.
