Organization wants 10,000 to try 'clean' commute options

Smart Trips, the regional organization that promotes alternatives to driving alone, will hold its first annual Clean Commute Day on Friday, August 20, 2010.

Organizers hope to encourage at least 10,000 people to carpool, bicycle, take the bus or walk to work that day, which they say would remove more than 200,000 pounds of pollution from the air.

An online pledge form has been set up to track participation, or those interested can register for Smart Trips and log their Clean Commute there. Both can be found at www.knoxsmarttrips.org.

Smart Trips' mission is to improve air quality and ease traffic congestion. The program rewards participants for choosing green commuting options and works with regional employers to develop customized worksite programs.
