The Buckhead Area Transportation Management Association (BATMA) sponsored “Go Green & Commute Clean” Earth Day event at Lenox Mall April 22, which included the opportunity for one lucky person to drive a Smart Fortwo car for 30 days courtesy of Smart Center Buckhead.
The two-seater Smart Fortwo car averages 40 miles per gallon of gasoline.
The 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. event focused on services and products that help commuters get around Buckhead in an eco-friendly way and adopt a green lifestyle.
The first 300 attendees received a gift bag filled with an Energy Star compact fluorescent light bulb, water bottle, ruler made from recycled U.S. currency and plastic and a brochure on BATMA. By 12:30 p.m. about 200 of the bags had been handed out.
Organizations which participated in the event were MARTA, the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign, Pedestrians Educating Drivers on Safety, Whole Foods Buckhead, Zipcar and the Better Air “BAIR.”
