Clean Vehicles and Clean Air partner for a cleaner tomorrow!

Motorworks Clean Vehicles, Inc. announced today it has signed on to be a Clean Air Community Partner through the New York State Department of Transportation's Clean Air NY initiative. Clean Air NY is a dynamic collaboration of organizations and individuals in the New York metro area who are taking actions to improve our air quality.

Community Partners agree to be liaisons between Clean Air NY and their network of members, and notify them of ways they can make a greater impact in improving Air Quality. Community partners encourage their members to combine errands into one trip, utilize mass transit, bike, walk, or share a ride by carpooling to work. These simple adjustments in everyday travel will help make New York's air quality cleaner and healthier.

Motorworks Clean Vehicles has agreed to distribute Clean Air NY information at its offices and showrooms, include a link to Clean Air NY at the bottom of all of its email signatures, and post Air Quality Action Day alerts on its website when there are dangerous air conditions (mostly in the summer months). As a Community Partner, Motorworks Clean Vehicles will display its logo on Clean Air NY's web site, offer tips about how to improve air quality, and collaborate with the Clean Air NY network of partners on events for various cross-promoting benefits. Motorworks Clean Vehicles feels strongly about informing our members of air quality-friendly and healthy commute alternatives. We will promote these alternatives through LITM, a local non-profit transportation management association that helps businesses and their employees choose commute options that are better for our air quality and our environment.

Air quality is a serious, ongoing problem. In a survey, conducted by the New York State Department of Transportation in June 2006, about forty-two percent of New Yorkers reported that someone in their family experiences negative health effects from air pollution. Clean Air NY encourages people to make simple everyday travel choices that can make a big difference.
