IdleBox: A Toolkit for Idle Reduction Education and Outreach
IdleBox is an electronic education and outreach toolkit on vehicle idle reduction. The low-hanging fruit of fuel economy, idle reduction is a simple way to use less fuel and minimize engine wear, reducing costs along with pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
What Is Idling?
Idling is running a vehicle’s propulsion engine when the vehicle isn’t moving. Idling wastes fuel and creates harmful emissions.
Use IdleBox to:
- Learn more about the benefits of idle reduction for your organization, fleet, or community.
- Engage and educate others—including drivers, fleet managers, policymakers, and sustainability managers—on the value of idle reduction.
- Launch an idle reduction campaign for your organization, fleet, or community.
