LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- High school students in Cache Valley are pledging to help the environment by taking fewer cars to school.

Six schools are participating in a campaign being sponsored by the Bear River Health Department.

Student leaders say they're focusing on reducing pollution by carpooling, while some students are choosing to ride their bikes to school.

In the past three months, there's been about a 27 percent reduction in the number of cars being driven to the schools. That's based on a count of cars in each school's parking lot.
