Idle Free 2022 Report

In it’s first year our Idle Free project has distributed 800 idle free information cards and a dozen idle free posters. We maintain a list of 25 volunteers/interested parties who participate in this new project. All of their informative outreach efforts have helped reduce needless vehicle idling which protects our air quality and the climate.

Idling vehicles at Good Will is unfortunately a common sight

Articles have run in the following publications: My Ballard, PCC’s August newsletter, Ballard High PTSA newsletter (2x), St. Andrews church newsletter, and the SHCA website. In addition, we delivered cards and posters to: Town and Country Market Ballard, Ballard PCC, Swerve’s drivers ed, PNA and at least 20 individuals at their request.

Idle Free volunteers tabled events/networked/handed out cards at: This year’s EcoSummit in April, Sunset Hill Community Association art walk in July (and presented to their board May), our Edible Garden Tour registration table in June and the Phinney Farmers Market in early September.
