Getting Started

The Active Switch online tool allows YOU to set a personal goal and keep track of your activities. The tool converts the distance you travel into greenhouse gas emissions reduced and calories burned, so that you can see the health and environmental impacts of making the Active Switch. Click here to download the Active Switch online tool guide.
