Feel like you’re doing your part to spare the air every time you commute to work? Then, submit a video (no more than 60 seconds in length) to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’sYouTube channel, explaining how you spare the air–be it via carpooling, biking, or telecommuting–and why you’re a savvy commuter. Keep in mind that if you don’t already have a YouTube account, you must register for one.

An entry ensures a chance to win some very eco-friendly prizes, of which there will be three. The grand prize is a Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike valued at $579. First prize is a $250 FasTrack pass and a $100 Starbucks gift card to make the morning commute a bit more pleasant. Second prize is one of 10 $100 Clipper passes which can be used on a myriad of transit systems, including BART, Caltrain, and Muni.

The contest runs from August 11 to September 30, for more details see the info beneath the video here.
