E-M:/ DFP Article: No Car Sunday



ROYAL OAK

Family's no-car Sunday makes a green statement
Environmental attitude catches on

BY BILL LAITNER

To spotlight all energy-wasting Dream Cruise revving, she founded the annual people-powered Green Cruise four years ago.

This fall, Royal Oak resident Shirley Bavonese has her family taking a stand every weekend.

They call it No Car Sunday, and it's just like it sounds: If they want to go to church, a Target store or Panera Bread on a Sunday, they climb on bikes. This past Sunday, the family did all of those things.
