March 20th: Anti-Idling Community Outreach!

On Saturday March 20th, 2010 M.E.V.O.volunteers will be holding up signs and passing out fliers in the center of town, in order to educate and raise awareness to the residents of Mahwah on the effects of vehicle Idling. Volunteers will line the sides of Franklin Turnpike and display signs to passing cars in order to remind drivers of the damage vehicle idling causes to the natural environment. Volunteers will pass out fliers to people passing by in order to educate them on the bad habit and make residents more aware of their actions.

Did you know?
Idling for over 10 seconds uses more fuel than restarting your engine.

Or did you know?
New Jersey has a No-Idling regulation that says, “with limited exceptions no motor vehicle (diesel or gasoline fueled) may have its engine running if stopped for more than three consecutive minutes.”
That is right! Its the LAW! People shouldn’t idle unnecessarily. For the better health of Mahwah residents and to help stop Climate Change.

So what do you say? Do you want to come volunteer and help educate and outreach to residents of Mahwah about a bad habit that they have the power to change? Do you want to help to clean-up, preserve, and protect the environment?

Well then Sign-Up for this event by emailing with your name, age, and phone number or by signing up on facebook and come volunteer with the Mahwah Environmental Volunteers Organization! We need your help, every voice counts!

Volunteers will gather at the Ramapo Ridge Association Club House on the corner of Ridge Road and Lydia Lane in Mahwah NJ, located in the condominium development next to Ramapo Ridge Middle School.  The event will start at 12:00 PM.

Please invite any friends you can. Every volunteer is needed.
