Thanks to all of you who bused, biked, walked, carpooled and worked from home from June 1st – June 5th, our green commute:

  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 2203 kg
  • Saved $663 in fuel
  • Burned 89,935 calories

Prizes for the College department with the highest participation will be announced later in the week. Congratulations to everyone who participated and helped to make Red River College a sustainability leader.
