Recruit Employers for Green Commuting Competition


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


166A Elm St.Cambridge, MA 02140


You can contribute in a concrete way to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Massachusetts. We need your help to sign up Boston/Cambridge and surrounding area organizations to participate in the 2017 Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge !


The Challenge invites employers to encourage their staff to commute car-free on the last Friday of every month, aka Walk/Ride Days. Walking, bicycling or using mass transit - even carpooling - all count! Organizations compete with one another to see who can get the most-green and or healthy commutes on the last Friday of each month.

The Challenge encourages people who may never have experimented with shifting their commuting mode in a greener direction to make a change -- one day per month is a much less daunting goal for "beginner" green commuters. During the 2013 Challenge, 19% of individuals participating made at least one 'green switch' in their commutes. Once they try it out, some continue on to make the greener option a more permanent part of their commuting strategies.


Your job will be to contact area companies and other organizations and convince them to sign up for the Walk/Ride Day Corporate Challenge. We will provide talking points, suggestions of who/how to contact at an organization, and logistical support. We encourage you to contact companies where you have a personal connection -- however, we can also provide you a list of potential organizations. For every company that you sign up, you will receive a percentage commission on their fees.
