There are two brand-new “No Idling” signs at our front and back entrances. These are to remind all who visit our church that idling is bad for the environment. This is just one small part of our GreenFaith certification process.
Idling is when a driver leaves the engine running and the vehicle parked. Everyday in the U.S. millions of cars and trucks idle needlessly, and an idling car can release as much pollution as a moving car.
Turn off your ignition if you’re waiting more than 10 seconds. Contrary to popular belief, restarting your car does not burn more fuel than leaving it idling. In fact, idling for just 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine.
