The Tri-Valley Spare the Air Resource Team invites you to join the effort to Spare the Air in the Tri-Valley through two innovative projects: “AQIA” - the Tri-Valley Air Impact Award and Idle-Free Tri-Valley.
AQIA – Tri-Valley Air Quality Impact Award. Are you or is someone you know doing something good for air quality in the Tri-Valley? The Tri-Valley Air Quality Impact Award recognizes individuals, businesses, and organizations that are making strides to improve local air quality through innovative projects and programs, such as reducing vehicle idling around schools or encouraging employees to carpool to work, among others.
The Resource Team is accepting nominations for AQIA through June 30, 2016.
Winners will be announced in late summer. Winners will receive a trophy and recognition at a meeting of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.
Idle Free Tri-Valley – Idling means leaving a vehicle’s engine running when it is parked or not in use. Drivers can save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by simply turning the ignition key. Over 1,500 parents, teachers, friends, and family members have already signed the Idle-Free pledge! Sign the pledge and you’ll be entered into a monthly prize drawing. Help spread the word — sample newsletter articles suitable for use in your school or community newsletter and other resources are available.
