Spanish Springs High students create Idle Free PSA

Check it out! The Green Paws Club at Spanish Springs High School in Sparks, Nevada has been working hard on their Idle Free Schools campaign. With over 2,000 students at their school and no easy walking or public transportation, car and bus idling is a big deal.

Students in the club have monitored how much idling is happening at Spanish Springs (a lot) and handed out stickers and flyers explaining the benefits of not idling. Now, to top it all off, they've combined their acting and video production prowess to make this super sweet public service announcement (PSA) about the benefits of going Idle Free.

Way to go, Green Paws!
