Clean Air Day Event Set
Prince George, B.C. – Bike to work Week may be over, but there is another incentive this week to encourage folks to use “active transportation” or make a pledge to help the environment.
This Wednesday is Clean Air Day across the country , and the City has joined with the Prince George Air Improvement Roundtable to provide a special celebration station for cyclists and those willing to make a pledge to do the little things to help keep the air clear.
Andrea Byrne is with Environment Services for the City of Prince George. She says the pledge doesn’t have to be to ride a bike to work “There are ways in our daily activities that we can reduce our impact” she adds the pledge may be along the lines of pledging to park your car and go into the store instead of idling in the drive thru , or it could be to hose down the driveway before sweeping, “Just actions like that to mitigate impacts to the air quality”.
Members of PG AIR will be on hand on Wednesday morning to take those pledges, which could lead to a prize. By taking the “Clean Air Pledge” , participants can also be entered to win a Mr. Pizza propane oven or a gift certificate towards cycling gear.
The celebration will take place at Veterans Plaza from 7 to 9 am on Wednesday.
