Part of the mission of the Sierra Club Foundation, John Muir Chapter, is to let citizens know how “green” laws can improve our lives. For instance, recently passed vehicle standards require automakers to achieve an average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. These standards, which were supported by the Sierra Club, will:

• Save consumers about $1.7 trillion at the gas pump
CAFE standards

• Cut US oil use by 12 billion barrels
• Keep 6 billion metric tons of carbon pollution out of the atmosphere

Our local John Muir Chapter also recognized some local businesses and nonprofits for their efforts to support electric vehicles:

Aldo Leopold Nature Center
Zimbrick Nissan Eastside
