Improving air quality is a crucial step towards a better future, and 339 Atlantic Station commuters are making a change for the better by participating in the “Million Air Challenge.” This challenge aims to remove one million pounds of emissions from Atlanta’s air. Because of continued efforts like these, the air quality continues to get better each year. Here are some of the benefits this challenge provides:


Better Air for the Entire Community

Every time you choose to use a green commute, you make a significant impact on reducing pollution and improving Atlanta air quality. This doesn’t just benefit you, but your neighbors as well. By taking part in this challenge, you’ll also be paving the way for a better, healthier future for everybody. Learn more about the state of Metropolitan Atlanta’s air quality here.


Better Overall Health

One easy way to improve air quality is to opt for more active ways of commuting like biking or walking. Walking and biking boosts cardiovascular health, reduces the risk of heart diseases and helps in maintaining a healthy weight. Additionally, walking and biking allow you to spend more time outdoors, which promotes mental health and reduces stress levels.


Better Commuting Routine

If you’re not quite ready for an active commute, public transit and carpooling are excellent options that can also add some variety to your daily routine. It’s worth considering and trying something new, and you might even find that you enjoy the change of pace!


Win Prizes for Trips You Already Take

By registering for the challenge and tracking your clean commutes through the GA Commute App, you’ll have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, including gift cards, cash, and goods from local businesses. These trips can be tracked whether you are carpooling, vanpooling, riding transit or teleworking, which are all the best driving alternatives available to you. Not everyone has a friend or co-worker who lives nearby and can carpool with them, and the app makes this process simpler than ever. Now that you understand the impact you can have from participating in this challenge, it’s time for you to take action- you can reap the benefits and earn rewards along the way. Let’s continue working together towards a healthier future with cleaner air!
