Be the E
I am E.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Be the E is a call to action evoking Gandhi’s quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Publictransportation.org is partnering with Earth Day New York to promote the environmental aspects of public transit. Each year, public transit use in the US saves 1.4 billion gallons of gas, the equivalent of 4 million gallons a day. That’s more than three times the amount of refined oil America imports from Kuwait. Besides being smart environmentally, for everyone concerned about America’s dependency on foreign oil, this is a no-brainer.
Your call to action is this: take a photo of yourself giving the I am E sign. Show that you support public transportation, then e-mail said picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I intend to make an awesome photo montage of your lovely faces and send it to our reps to show that Atlanta is E. We need public transit and we care.
I’ve already got some friends that are E, are you?
