ASUU CLEAN AIR CHALLENGE

January is notorious for smog and poor air quality in the Salt Lake Valley. Fellow students at the U have begun an initiative to help bring about change. The ASUU Clean Air For U Challenge begins on Feb. 1 and lasts until the end of the month. Encouraging students to walk, bike, take Trax, ride buses and shuttles, ASUU has partnered with the Sustainability Office to  create a website where students can track their efforts on contributing to better air. At the end of the month, prizes will be awarded to select participants. Log your sustainable trips at this link: tinyurl.com/Ucleanair.
