Calling for volunteers to help educate motorists about car idling

Volunteer on November 17 to help educate motorists about car Idling and help promote cleaner air. You can sign up here:

Did you know that 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than turning off the engine and restarting it? And, that an idling vehicle emits 20 times more pollution than one traveling 32 mph? 

On Saturday, November 17 Think Outside the Car volunteers will help educate motorists about car idling and hand out friendly take away reminders to turn off the car while waiting for the ferry.  The Think Outside the Car project has been building community, reducing carbon emissions, and promoting cleaner air through neighborhood schools and educating parents and students about the effects of car idling. The project has also helped schools start Walking School Buses- which is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. To find out more information about Walking School buses go here:

Thank you to our sponsors: Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, CoolMom, and Safeway
