This week, we are holding a contest on Twitter to celebrate Pollution Probe’s Clean Air Commute!
The Commute takes place June 18-24, 2012 and encourages people to take cleaner modes of travel to work such as cycling, walking and public transit instead of driving.
From today (Tuesday, June 19, 2012) to Friday at noon EST (June 22), Tweet us and tell us how you and/or your workplace are getting involved. You can Tweet your story or Tweet a link to a blog post, picture or video about your green commute. Follow us on Twitter @GreenHeroesTV and make sure you include the hashtag #airGH We will pick the best story and the winner will get an eco-friendly GreenHeroes t-shirt made of 100% recycled fabric.! (There will be one winner, one t-shirt).
You must be in Canada to apply. We will announce the winner in the afternoon on June 26 on Twitter and in our blog.
For ideas about how you can help the earth when you commute to work, check out GreenHeroes Andrew Clifford, a champion of electric cars, and Boston Bruin Defenceman and clean air/cycling advocate Andrew Ference.
Tomorrow, GreenHeroes will be visiting Toronto Hydro and Ontario Power Authority to document their participation in the Clean Air Commute for an episode of the next season of our television show. In our blog post on Clean Air Commute next week, we will share a sneak peak of the shoots.
