How Big is Your Footprint?
The Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition members and RIPTA are teaming up to bring you the 2010 Commuter Carbon Reducation Challenge.
The goal of the challenge is to see how many pounds of CO2 you can save commuting by some means other than a single occupancy vehicle. Whatever your method of alternative commute, be it riding a bike, walking, riding a bus, carpooling, or even working from home, you will emit less CO2 than driving a single occupancy car and get credit!
We currently have over $1000 dollars in prizes and are working to collect even more. Prizes will be awarded based on both your level of participation and largest CO2 offset. We will post details next week on how you can sign up for the challenge and how you can log your commutes starting on May 1st.
Let’s see how big an impact such a little state can have on reducing our portion of greenhouse gases.
