CANY Julien Quote

Clean Air NY Advocate, Julien on carpooling:

"Go for it! You meet people. Have conversations. The drive doesn't seem as long. We all save money, preserve the environment, and decrease the number of cars on the road."

CANY Cara Quote

Girl on train

Clean Air NY Advocate, Cara on the next generation:

"I take the train to work, and walk whenever I can. I'm not perfect, but I try my best, and always try to teach my daughter that her actions matter. Even at age 3, she will never leave her light on, and she loves the train - which I call a Clean Air victory!"
