Don’t drive your gas-guzzling cars this Saturday, April 23rd!
Last weekend, Logan Conover debuted his WHEN, NOT IF… project at the Santa Cruz Earth Day festival. He met with hundreds of people to encourage them to join him in not driving their cars on Saturday, April 23rd. While some might think that Santa Cruz is filled with tree huggers and liberals, Logan was surprised to meet people who didn’t understand that driving cars causes a substantial impact on CO2 in our atmosphere. Then, there were others who have actually sold their cars and bike everywhere. The Santa Cruz Sentinel featured Logan’s project on the front page of the Sunday paper.
Logan recruited Nathan Decena, of Willow Glen High School, and Angelique Su, of Merit Academy to join him at the Earth Day event. Nathan brought a life-size Darth Vadar to attract the attention of the hundreds of children – and it worked! Kids came to the WHEN, NOT IF booth to see Darth Vadar, and their parents followed along and engaged in conversation with Logan. Visitors added their names and email addresses to Logan’s mailing list so he could remind them of future non-driving days and get their friends to join the movement.
Make plans to clear your day of all driving responsibilities on Saturday, April 23rd. Take a break from the hustle bustle of everyday life. Dust off your bikes and put air in the tires. Take the family on a bike trip or walk to your favorite beaches. Too far to walk? Take public transportation!
Then, go to www.WhenNotIf.org to enter your stats for Logan. He’ll tally this up and calculate how much CO2 we prevented from entering the atmosphere! Help Logan; help civilization as we know it. Thanks for doing your part!
