Though the Clear the Air Challenge has already started, it’s not too late for you to join the rest of the state in clearing our air. Air quality affects us all, so we can do our part.
Thanks to a grant from UCAIR earlier this year, the Challenge has implemented new online tracking software to help keep track of miles and gas saved. It can help you plan your trips to drive less and drive smarter. This new technology also allows you to track your past miles saved—as far back as when the Challenge started on July 1st. So it’s okay if you registered late!
The Clear the Air Challenge technology is also highly interactive, giving you the opportunity to earn and share virtual badges. As an active participant, you have the chance to win real-life prizes for doing your part in the Clear the Air Challenge.
Remember, you can still join the Challenge! We all play a role in keeping our air clean. Get your friends, family, coworkers or even your whole business involved in the Challenge to see who can save the most miles driven. Learn more about the Challenge and register online with your Facebook account at ClearTheAirChallenge.org.

Salt Lake City-based Richter7 received nine 2014 American Advertising Awards from the American Advertising Federation.
Richter7 was recognized with four Gold and five Silver awards for their 2013 LEGO® animals campaign for Utah’s Hogle Zoo. Formerly known as the ADDYs, the American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition.
Creative director Gary Sume says the three-stage process of the American Advertising Awards makes it really challenging to win at the national level. Winning just shows what can happen with a willing client, a great product and a little luck.
The campaign was recognized in four different categories: non-traditional, integrated, collateral and television.
The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.
Established in 1971, Richter7 has been named Utah’s “Best of State” advertising agency eight times in the past decade and is nationally recognized for effective advertising, public relations, online interactive and design.
In today’s digital economy, mobile is the future of money.
Citizens around the Wasatch Front can now tap to pay with their smartphone at any of the 43 Smith’s Food and Drug stores, as well as hundreds of other stores and restaurants, around the region. Additionally, Smith’s customers can add their loyalty card to the Isis Wallet and no longer worry about carrying around the bulky key fob.
Since the launch of Isis nationwide last November, consumers across the country are experiencing the power and simplicity of paying with their phone and the response has been tremendous. In May, the company averaged over 20,000 Isis Wallet activations a day and their growth rate doubled over the prior month.
The right ecosystem support is in place to bolster growing consumer adoption. As of today, 68 mobile devices across AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless support the Wallet. The Wallet now comes preloaded on 14 smartphones with more preloaded devices in the pipeline. You can download the Isis Wallet for free from the App Store or Google Play. Once set up, customers can pay at more than 200,000 merchants across the nation.
