We are excited to help clear Utah’s air during the Clear the Air Challenge starting July 1st. This year we will be splitting up by department to see who can save the most trips and miles. The winning team will not only have endless bragging rights, but will get a free lunch of their choice. Additionally, individuals who save the most trips and miles will win prizes.
To encourage employees to drive less, PPBH will be bringing lunch into the office every Wednesday. We will also have “carpool to lunch Tuesdays” and “walk to lunch Fridays.”
This initiative is important to PPBH because poor air quality in Utah can negatively affect our economy, our environment, our health and our overall quality of life. With transportation emissions being responsible for 50 percent of ground level ozone, the Challenge is a smart way to persuade our employees to drive less and drive smarter.
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO GET INVOLVED
There are a few ways that you can get involved. You can participate as an individual, as a team, or with your company. You can eliminate trips by carpooling, taking public transit, biking, or just by planning ahead and consolidating your trips throughout the day.
Not only will you be rewarded with better air quality, but the Clear the Air Challenge encourages participation by offering weekly prize drawing as well as grand prizes.
The overall goal for this year’s Clear the Air Challenge is to eliminate 300,000 vehicle trips and save 2 million miles.
Let’s see if you have what it takes to beat PPBH in this Challenge. Sign up at ClearTheAirChallenge.org.
