What is the Green Cruise?

Sierra Club organizes the Green Cruise to celebrate alternative forms of transportation that do not burn fossil fuels by celebrating the people that use these alternatives – walkers, canoers, bikers, runners, rollerbladers, hikers, swimmers, etc.


Let us know what form of green transportation you will be using (bike, walk, canoe, skies, etc.).  Email Melissa at melissa.damaschke@sierraclub.org.  


Take the Green Cruise Pledge...

Sign the Green Cruise Pledge and receive special recognition and qualify to win cool prizes.  (Make sure to complete and send in the form by Friday, August 4.  Directions on Pledge Form.)


The Pledge (print off form here)

In an effort to save money, keep myself personally fit, and make our air safe to breathe, I promise to walk, rollerblade, hike, run, canoe, kayak, and/or ride my bike at least once a week.


Benefits of Taking the Green Cruise Pledge:

By agreeing to use green forms of transportation during your commute at least once a week, you will reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, save money, keep yourself physically fit, and have fun!  You will also receive a cool “Green Cruiser” ribbon to wear as well as become eligible to be the 2006 Green Cruiser of the Year and to win cool prizes at the Green Cruise on Saturday, August 12.
