Earth Day

Team up with us for polar bears on Earth Day, April 22, and every day by taking our Transportation Challenge.

Then take the next step through community solutions!

Here's how:

  • On Earth Day—or starting any day you choose—make a pledge to walk, bike, carpool, or use mass transportation when possible.
  • When you do drive, don’t idle! Pledge to turn off your car for waits longer than 10 seconds. This means avoiding drive-through lanes at businesses, turning off your engine in carpool lines, and, in winter, not warming your engine for more than 30 seconds.
Become part of community change:
  • Launch a Bike Commute Challenge at your workplace or school.
  • Start a No Idling Challenge at your workplace, school, or church.
  • Share photos or videos of your actions on our social networks with #saveourseaice.
How do community actions make a difference?
