Park Your Carbon Week

You can reduce carbon pollution in Vermont and impact worldwide climate change. Park Your Carbon is a week-long initiative to help change Vermonters’ transportation and commuting habits by encouraging green ways of travel. Do it for a day, a week or make it a habit. Bike. Walk. Share Your Ride. Bus. Work From Home.

Why Participate?

The number one contributor of carbon pollution in Vermont is transportation (over 40%) and the majority is from people driving alone.

Vermont’s new climate plan requires we meet net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. There are so many benefits beyond the urgent need for our world. You can reduce congestion on Vermont’s roadways, downtown parking spots, and at pickup time in front of your child’s school. People-powered modes like biking and walking are great for physical and mental health and taking the bus or ridesharing saves enormous amounts of money compared to driving yourself in your own car. A big reason to do something now is for your children, their children, and future generations.
