MVHS Carbon-Free Commute 

 
MVHS Carbon-Free Commute is dedicated to helping and encouraging everyone in the MVHS community get to school in a fun, healthy and environmentally-friendly way.  The program puts on such events as free bike-light distribution and hot chocolate for all carbon-free commuters on a cold winter day. And it celebrates Earth Day and Bike to Work Day.  
 
The Carbon-Free Commute organizers collaborate with the MVHS Environmental Club and other groups on various activities.  The website is updated with information about transportation options, useful tips, student-produced videos, maps and more.
 
Volunteers are especially welcome. Come and join the team.  It takes very little time and even if you can volunteer just once, it would be hugely appreciated.  Ready to volunteer? Or have questions? Email the organizers at mvhscfc@gmail.com.
