Tri Valley

Resource Team

The Tri-Valley Spare the Air Resource Team invites you to join the effort to Spare the Air in the Tri-Valley through two innovative projects: “AQIA” - the Tri-Valley Air Impact Award and Idle-Free Tri-Valley.

AQIA – Tri-Valley Air Quality Impact Award. Are you or is someone you know doing something good for air quality in the Tri-Valley? The Tri-Valley Air Quality Impact Award recognizes individuals, businesses, and organizations that are making strides to improve local air quality through innovative projects and programs, such as reducing vehicle idling around schools or encouraging employees to carpool to work, among others.

Congratulations to New Leaf Community Markets in Pleasanton, winner of the 2016 Air Quality Impact Award. New Leaf Community Markets is a major supporter of biking in the Tri-Valley, donating to and hosting half of the City of Pleasanton’s Bike to Work Day energizer stations, as well as hosting a Bike to Work Day After Party with Hacienda Business Park. New Leaf donated to all three Pleasanton middle schools’ Bike to School booths and several other schools and organizations. New Leaf Community Markets also promotes sustainability with its “Carrot Cash” market dollars and “Envirotokens” programs.

Nominations for the 2017 Air Quality Impact Award will be accepted from February 1 through June 30, 2017.  

Idle Free Tri-Valley – Idling means leaving a vehicle’s engine running when it is parked or not in use. Drivers can save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by simply turning off the ignition key. Over 1,500 parents, teachers, friends, and family members have already signed the Idle-Free pledge! Sign the pledge and you’ll be entered into a monthly prize drawing. Help spread the word — sample newsletter articles suitable for use in your school or community newsletter and other resources are available.
