Breathe Easy Save Easy Sweepstakes Rewards Actions That Can Impact the Environment
2012 AUG 17 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Ecology, Environment & Conservation -- You probably know that carpooling and taking public transit reduces air pollution. Did you know that if you RideShare, walk or bike instead of driving, you could save up to $1,400 a year? Did you know that replacing your five most frequently used light fixtures with ENERGY STAR® qualified lighting could save you $70 in electric costs?*
These are the kinds of savings that Illinois Partners for Clean Air (Illinois PFCA) want you to know about. The nonprofit coalition of government agencies, businesses and health advocacy groups is reaching out to residents of the Chicago region through the Breathe Easy Save Easy Sweepstakes being launched August 1, 2012. The sweepstakes will challenge participants to select easy to do actions that have both the effect of reducing air pollution and generating cost savings.
Participants can access the Breathe Easy Save Easy Sweepstakes website at www.BreatheEasySaveEasy.com and the Illinois PFCA website at www.CleanTheAir.org to find a list of suggested actions they can take in their daily lives to reduce air pollution and save money.
"Even the smallest of changes in lifestyle can make an important contribution to reducing air pollution and generating savings for you and your family," noted Kim Biggs, Chairperson of Illinois PFCA.
Individuals enter the sweepstakes by selecting one or more specific actions they can do and filling out the entry form. Entry forms will also be available at Illinois PFCA community outreach events throughout the year. By submitting the form, participants are entered in the month's drawing, with a chance to win an environmentally conscious prize package valued at a minimum of $200.
