If you don’t commute, you don’t pollute. It’s a simple message with a big impact.

Momentum is challenging employees across the country to telecommuting 1 day during Earth Week 2013, April 22-26, to reduce commuter consumption and preserve our planet.

For every individual that makes the pledge to work from home one day during Earth Week, Momentum will make a $10 donation to Green America!
