Maret is a vibrant K-12, co-educational, independent school in Washington, DC. We ignite our students’ potential and foster their academic, artistic, and athletic talents. We develop the mind, nurture curiosity, welcome challenge, embrace joy, and build community that is equitable and inclusive.
We are always looking for ways to be greener, and this year we are starting a new initiative called “Car Count.” The idea is simple: last week, we counted cars coming onto campus in the morning. Over the course of the year, we will try to reduce that number during set weeks (some announced, some unannounced). On Monday, we will kick off Maret's first Car Count week, September 22-26.
During the week of Car Count, we encourage students, parents, and faculty to try out walking, biking, carpooling, and taking Metro to school. Every act counts with Car Count. Even if your schedule dictates that you must come by car four days a week, coming by carpool that fifth day really helps. If you are unable to change how you commute, you can help in other ways: talk about it with friends, hand out stickers during the week of Car Count, volunteer to count cars, and the like.
Our hope is that Car Count week will inspire all of us to continue to find alternate, greener ways to travel to school.
