The local environmental advocacy group “Color Brighton Green” has invited Corn Hill and other neighborhoods in our community to join with them in their “Curb your Car Week” initiative, May 12 – 18.
This program encourages the use of cheaper, healthier, and more earth-friendly transportation alternatives.
During one week in spring and one week in fall, participants who would normally use an automobile for daily transportation switch to walking, biking, car pooling, or riding the bus as alternatives. Last fall, 57 participants reported saving over 6000 miles of automobile travel: more than 250 gallons of gasoline saved, and 2 1/2 tons less CO2 in the atmosphere.
Go green along with your Corn Hill neighbors and curb your car for one week!
