The American Lung Association launched a program-titled Vermont Idle-Free Fleets-to raise awareness of health
effects and the impact of unnecessary diesel idling. Several Vermont businesses are onboard with idling policies. "This policy offers many good things. It saves money, decreases our carbon footprint and air pollution. We are hoping by our example to show others a better way doing business," said Chris Keyser from Keyser Energy of Rutland. He signed his firm's policy pictured here.
