We’re building tons of momentum around #CleanBuses4Kids in Fairfax County. It’s time to celebrate and keep spreading the word.
Join us on on October 21st to talk electric school buses over good food and a couple of drinks. Find out more about #CleanBuses4Kids and how you can help us make electric school buses a reality for our kids here in Fairfax County.
Mothers Out Front is coming to your community.
We will present ways to save energy in your home that will allow you to save money on your electricity bills. We will distribute free supplies like LED light bulbs, caulk, caulk guns and other weatherization supplies (while supplies last).
We will help residents sign up for the Dominion weatherization assistance program, where Dominion will come to your home, test it for energy leaks, and make any needed repairs, such as repairing or replacing your heating and air-conditioning systems, repairing ducts, sealing windows, etc. We will also be taking sign-ups for a new program to potentially allow solar installation on your home at no out-of-pocket cost to you.
This is all part of our effort to lower your financial energy burden and decrease the overall carbon footprint of our city.
We want our School District to transition to Electric School Buses!
Please support the transition from DIRTY, DIESEL School Buses to CLEAN, QUIET Electric School Buses.
This webinar will be presented by Mothers Out Front moms - just like you - who have launched a campaign in Fairfax asking that their School District begin transitioning the school bus fleet to clean Electric School Buses. Learn more about #CleanBuses4Kids and how you can make electric school buses a reality for our children here in Hampton Roads!
24 million school children travel on 454,000 school buses nationwide. About 90 percent of these buses run on diesel fuel annually emitting:
- 3,000 tons of cancer-causing soot
- 95,000 tons of smog-causing compounds
- Children riding on diesel school buses are exposed to 5 to 15 times more air toxins than the rest of the population.
We want our children and all children to have safe and healthy a ride to school, and a livable climate for their future so they can put that education to use!
