Message from the Green Team

As the weather starts to get colder, here’s a friendly reminder from the Green Team to those of you who might drive to pick up your children after school… Please consider turning off your car as you wait for your kids.

“Contrary to popular belief, restarting your car does not burn more fuel than leaving it idling. In fact, idling for just 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine” (Environmental Defense Fund).
