Green Commute: May 13-19

The Holland/Zeeland Green Commute Week is now in its 11th year! The week-long event encourages members of the community to commute “green” at least twice within the week. So try walking, biking, riding the bus, or instead of driving alone, we encourage carpooling! NEW this year, we’ve also added telecommuting and driving a fully electric car! These personal actions have the ability to improve our air and strengthen our bodies!

This event is for everyone. Individuals and groups, we also have an employer commute challenge and a school competition!

Be sure to check facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates!
