The Electric Bus Solution : A Climate Conversation

Electric School Buses & Its Health Benefits: A Climate Conversation with Parents & Youth
It’s time for our iconic yellow school bus to go green! Every day, millions of children hop onto school buses that run on dirty diesel engines. Diesel buses create tailpipe pollution, which causes a wide range of health issues. Tailpipe pollution from buses is shown to trigger asthma attacks, interfere with lung development, contribute to cancer — and even reduce children’s ability to learn.
Electric school buses can help protect children’s health while helping Delaware reach its climate and environmental justice goals. Delaware Interfaith Power & Light and United Way of Delaware Invites you to join the panel of experts to learn how we can advocate for cleaner buses to protect our children’s health and future.
