E-Mission Engine Idling

Please help us raise funds to help reduce air pollution! 
Since 2006, we have been campaigning in New York to reduce air pollution through engine idling. This journey has led us down many exciting and interesting paths including the release of a movie, a children's book and lobbying with city officials to sign new bills and change laws.

As a result of this work, we are now in a position where citizens can complain about idling commercial vehicles and receive a share of the fine. It's a process that is administratively burdensome, but it works and many testers have earned thousands of dollars in fine shares. Not only that, with all the media attention and citizens activism we have noticed a decline in engine idling and an awareness from drivers. To scale this proven process and have an even greater impact we have built a smartphone application "E-Mission" that eliminates much of the burden of submissions. It connects to the City's systems and provides tracking and updates of case status and fines due.

Your donation is greatly appreciated and helps us maintain our product, produce feature enhancements and publicize our campaign to clean the air in New York City.
