In an effort to be as green as we can be, our Environmental Representatives worked with Don Kingman to install signs in the Aloian circle asking people waiting for students to turn off their car engines. The signs read: “CA students never idle, neither should your engine.” The statistics that have led them to push for these signs (and the shutting off of engines) are below:

  • For every 10 minutes your engine is off, you’ll prevent one pound of carbon dioxide, the primary contributor to global warming, from being released.
  • In fact, idling for just 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine.
  • ​Thanks for your help!
