Idling = wasted gas = wasted $$$

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 billion gallons. That’s a lot of gallons, people.

From the smart folks at the Cape Cod Times:

Let’s start with boring but telling numbers from the U.S. Department of Energy, which estimates that we waste 6 billion gallons of fuel a year by idling our cars and trucks. About half of that is from personal vehicles, which consume, on average, 12 gallons of fuel per vehicle per year from idling – enough to fill most gas tanks. Nationwide, idling costs $8 billion a year, and spews an extra 30 million tons of carbon dioxide into the air we breathe.

Namaste!

One of KAIRE’s mantras has always been “Breathe.” So when the Harrison County, Indiana YMCA yoga class made a special request for some KAIRE Breathe t-shirts, we dug through the storage room to make it happen.  Abby Coffman teaches this all-ages class. We think the shirts look great! Namaste!

We’re Stuck on These New KAIRE Stickers!

KAIRE just got in some new promotional stickers, and we’re happy to say, we love’em!

We hope the three new designs will help  make our messages “stick” with our air friendly followers, since they share our name, our website, and the important Idle Free message, “Count to 10, Car off then!”

They look equally great on a folder, a reusable water bottle or a clipboard.  In fact, we think they would look great just about anywhere people need a reminder to help the air.
