JUST SAY NO TO IDLING CAMPAIGN

Schools have partnered with Kern Green for the Just Say No to Idling Campaign. Through this program, schools will be establishing a No Idling Zone to improve air quality and create a healthier environment for students.

WHY IT IS IMPORTANT

  • Children are more vulnerable to the health impacts of vehicle emissions than other populations.
  • Children breath 50% more air per pound than adults.
  • Children are closer to the ground; therefore, closer to vehicle tailpipes.
  • Asthma symptoms in children increase as a result of exposure to car exhaust.
  • Asthma is the most common chronic illness in children and the cause of most school absences.

BENEFITS TO YO, YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR SCHOOL

  • By not idling, you keep 3 pounds of pollution per month from going into the air.
  • You save money! One hour of idling burns up to a gallon of fuel.
  • No idling reduces car exhaust and decreases your child’s exposure to unhealthy vehicle emissions.
  • While idling your car, you are getting zero miles to the gallon.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  • Turn off your engine while waiting at school for your child.

THANKS FOR TURNING OFF YOUR ENGINE!
