Take your bicycle, your roller blades, public transit or just your good ol’ feet — just don’t take your car.
That’s the challenge the Sustainable Alberta Association (SAA) is issuing to Calgarians as National Environment Week kicks off on Sunday.
“Waking, car pooling, transit or biking to work are all viable alternative modes of transportation we’re encouraging people and their workplaces to think about,” founder and executive director of the SAA Kathryn Winkler told Metro.
Last year, 39,000 Canadians in 170 communities and 1700 workplaces took part in the initiative across the country.
Workplaces are encouraged to sign up and individuals are always welcome, Winkler added. For more information please visit www.commuterchallenge.ca.
