Promoting Eco-Friendly Activities in Mexico City

Here in Mexico City, more than 160,000 residents participate in the ECOBICI bike share program.  Programs like Eco-Bici help reduce carbon emissions, traffic congestion, and promote public health by encouraging people to ride a bicycle instead of a car, taxi, or public transportation to get to work and other destinations.  To celebrate Earth Day, Ambassador Wayne and members of the Embassy Green Team rode bicycles and jogged from the Embassy to the Benjamin Franklin Library.  At the library, the Ambassador awarded prizes to children and youth who participated in an Embassy Earth Day Art Contest.
