Lansing-bound Commuters gear up for the 5th annual Clean Commute Day
Lansing, Mich. – Greater Lansing is competing for the title of “Michigan’s Cleanest-Commuting Community” in the 5th annual Clean Commute Day. Clean Commute Day is a regional competition between Greater Lansing, Grand Rapids, Southeast Michigan and Southwest Michigan, that encourages area commuters to make a difference by choosing clean transportation like a carpool, the bus, walking or riding a bike.
This year Clean Commute Day includes a new competing region: Southwest Michigan. Originally called “Casual Commute Day,” the event was created to improve air quality in the state of Michigan by reducing CO2 and ozone emissions from transportation, educate the public about how their transportation choices affect air quality and help commuters find cleaner transportation options.
Greater Lansing will host a free celebration event open to the public on May 4 from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at UrbanBeat Event Center, located at 1213 Turner St. in old Town Lansing. The event will offer attendees the opportunity to make a terrarium, test their ozone knowledge and spin a prize wheel. Commuters can learn about clean transportation options and RSVP on Facebook.
