The Town of Wellesley partnered with Girl Scout Troop 73505, Wellesley Green Schools, and various others, to launch the Earth Day 2019 No Idling Campaign. Idling your car is against the law, expensive, and unhealthy for you, those around you, and the environment. If drivers make an effort to turn off their engines when they are waiting in the car, we can improve public health, protect the environment, and enhance quality of life!
All residents are encouraged to Turn the Key, and Be Idle Free!
