Let's Save 300,000 Gallons of Gas a Year

Since we launched our Turn It Off anti-idling campaign in June, thousands of people have pledged to stop unnecessary idling. Thanks to all of you who have pledged! It may seem like a small change, but together we’ve already gotten enough pledges to save 65,000 gallons of gas per year. (Here’s a cool map of all the pledges we’ve gotten so far.)

Many people who signed the pledge have asked for ways to spread the word about idling in their local communities. We thought that was a great idea, so we just launched an anti-idling toolkit with free downloadable posters, flyers, and infographics, ready for printing and sharing. If everyone who has pledged so far influences 4 or 5 more people to curb unnecessary idling, we can save 300,000 gallons of gas per year!

Hang a poster at your workplace, school, home, local coffee shop, etc. Leave flyer fact sheets on idling vehicle windshields. Email graphics to friends, family and community members to spread the word! If you own a business, share your efforts with your customers and community.

If you hang a poster, email a picture to info@sustainableamerica.org and we’ll post it on our Facebook page.

Save fuel and money.

Do something good for your planet.

Teach others about how easy it is to “Turn It Off.”

Encourage them to pass it on.

P.S. If you haven’t pledged yet, it’s not too late. Pledge to stop idling here, and we’ll send you a free bumper sticker—another great way to spread the word.
