Big Green Commute 2015

May 11-15, 2015

The Big Green Commute is a week-long competition for offices in the Washington, DC region to compete against one another to encourage employees to adopt more sustainable methods of traveling to work.

54 corporate, non-profit, and government offices in the region competed for the Greenest Commute trophy during the 2013 Big Green Commute. Participants collectively saved over 107,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, compared to an average U.S. commute, and traveled 19,000 miles in just one week. Learn more about how the challenge works HERE.
