Student anti-idling campaign

From Julian Bellak, 11th grade: Did you know that idling your car can produce harmful carbon emissions that contribute to air pollution and climate change? Not only that, but idling is also a waste of fuel and money. Fortunately, there are easy steps you can take to reduce your carbon footprint and save money. Instead of idling, turn off your engine when you’re parked for more than 10 seconds. If you’re waiting for someone or something, consider turning off your engine and stepping outside to enjoy the fresh air. By reducing your idling time, you’ll not only help protect the environment and reduce your carbon footprint, but you’ll also save money on fuel costs. So let’s all do our part to make our community a healthier and more sustainable place to live.
