    Join us on December 8, 7-8pm to learn about our campaign to make Prince William Schools idle free, and hear updates from moms who are fighting for cleaner air for our kids at their schools!

     

    More info: Did you know that leaving your car engine on for one minute produces more carbon monoxide - a toxic gas - than the smoke from 3 packs of cigarettes? Ac­cord­ing to the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency, "Chil­dren are more sus­cep­ti­ble to air pol­lu­tion than healthy adults be­cause their res­pi­ra­tory sys­tems are still de­vel­op­ing and they have a faster breath­ing rate".

    When parents wait to drop off or pick up their kids from school they often leave their car engine on (idling), creating a pollution "hot spot" and harming our children's health. We must protect them and turn our car's engine off at pick up and drop-off time.
