Webasto creates website for idle reduction

Webasto's website — www.makealeap.org (LEaP) — is an educational and informational single point-of-reference database of idle reduction information and educational resources.

LEaP stands for “lowering emissions and particulates.”

The website combines some of the best information available, particularly on the difficult-to-understand, difficult-to-track status of many different idling laws and regulations from states and local municipalities across the United States.

There is also information on idle reduction rebate programs, a list of environmentally conscious legislators, and a section on idling myths and facts.

Webasto, a developer of idle reduction technologies, uses a green frog for its LEaP mascot. It was chosen as a metaphor for environmental well-being because in nature, the health of frog populations is a direct reflection of the cleanliness of their environment.
