California Clean Air Day 2020

Join all of California for Clean Air Day on October 6

Make a pledge to clean the air, then leave your car at home on October 6, 2021.

Help reduce your carbon footprint by teleworking or try active transportation, transit, carpool or vanpool on Clean Air Day.

Pledge to participate at CLEANAIRDAY.ORG.

Employers. Be a part of the effort towards cleaner air – register your organization and promote alternative transportation on Clean Air Day, October 6.

iCommute provides resources to help you grow your commuter program. Let us help inform you and your employees about the benefits of commute alternatives, including telework. All registered employers will receive an eToolKit with promotional materials and support from the iCommute team.

The employers that get the most employees to pledge will receive recognition in a print ad in a regional newspaper, on iCommute social media, and on the iCommute website!

In addition, registered organizations will earn a point toward a SANDAG iCommute Diamond Award.

Join us for our California Clean Air Day Webinar on September 28 to learn how you can encourage your employees to reduce their carbon footprint by leaving their car at home!
