Big Green Commute 2017


The Big Green Commute is a week-long competition for offices in the Washington, DC region that scores participating employees based on how they get to work. Encouraging more sustainable methods of traveling – walking, biking, public transit, and carpooling, the Big Green Commute hopes to challenge everyone to make their typical commute just a little better.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2016 BGC! Please join us in 2017

Special thanks to our Donors!

We’re very happy that the BGC has raised $6,100 for Coalition for Smarter Growth and Community of Hope in our 2016 event!! That’s our largest number yet! These organizations use the support generated from the BGC to provide transit subsidies for low-income and homeless residents and to strengthen programs designed to allow more people to have a greener commute.
