Clean Air Campaign

Make Money by NOT Driving!

by Jimmy L

If you’ve been thinking about alternative/greener modes of transportation, then now is the time to get serious. Gas prices have never been so high and global warming has never been worse. As if that’s not incentive enough, a non-profit organization called the Clean Air Campaign is literally PAYING you to NOT drive your car.

Their Commuter Rewards program rewards commuters who currently drive alone to work when they agree to start using a clean commute alternative. Start carpooling, teleworking, using transit, walking or bicycling to work and earn $3 per day, up to $180 over an assigned 90-day period.

They also offer rewards for carpooling to work. Finding people who are willing to carpool with you is easy using the RideSmart website. The website matches you up with people who live and work in your vicinity, so you don’t have to do any of the work.
