A-Day-Without-Driving is a grassroots movement dedicated to educating the world about how we can decrease our carbon footprint…one mile at a time.

Together, we can reduce our dependency on domestic and foreign oil, remind ourselves of simpler times, create community, and most importantly – decrease our carbon footprint.

For those in San Francisco, come join A DAY WITHOUT DRIVING for a picnic in Dolores Park August 15th!

At A Day Without Driving, you can calculate your carbon impact, pledge not to drive for one day (or pledge an offset if you must drive), learn green driving techniques, support the development of green technologies, and help decrease our global carbon footprint.

Pete Ippel, the son of a dancer and a musician, was born in Oak Park, Illinois and has been surrounded by the arts since birth. He moved to Morris, Illinois in 1989 and started to participate in athletics rather than dance. After high school, Pete attended Cornell University where he received a BA in psychology and a BFA in photo / digital art making. He continued to follow his sporting dreams in the high jump, which culminated in a school record leap of 7 feet 1/2 inch in 2001. In May 2004 he attained an MFA degree in the New Genres department of the San Francisco Art Institute. Presently Pete is a practicing artist whose work is in numerous private collections and has been exhibited in New York, California, and internationally. Mr. Ippel resides in Working Artists Ventura, a sustainable artist community in southern California. In addition, he teaches art, is a web developer, an active blogger, and still high jumps from time to time. As a passionate problem solver and a pragmatic optimist, Pete’s art and his life are full of exciting challenges.
