It's Easy Being Green

Green Week - I RIDE GREEN Challenge

--- I RIDE GREEN Challenge

For this challenge, we tapped the Rogers employees to see how they RIDE GREEN.  The video is a result of that inquiry.

Check out the video and see how we do it:

So we can't always make the green choice, but small changes in our daily lives can have a major impact.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, each day Americans collectively travel a total of 15 million miles on car trips that are ½ mile or less. These micro-trips account for nearly one million gallons of gasoline burned and 10,000 tons of CO2 released into the atmosphere daily. --GreenEducationFoundation.org

Try your best, and if given the choice, go green or at least greener.

TIPS FROM GreenEducationFoundation.ORG

I Ride Green invites participants to start easy-to-adopt sustainable transportation habits that can lead to lifelong healthy behaviors.

  • Walk, bike or skate to local destinations whenever safe and practical
  • Advocate for the installation of safe sidewalks and bicycle paths to schools and other local destinations
