South Shore Clean Cities, a nonprofit based in the Lake County town of St. John, has changed its name to Drive Clean Indiana. The nonprofit says the rebranding is part of the statewide designation process under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program.
In 2020, Indiana was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to participate in a statewide Clean Cities coalition pilot program. The program is focused on expanding outreach activities and technical assistance to stakeholders and participants.
“We’re thrilled to be able to announce our new name and rebranding as part of our move to a statewide Clean Cities coalition,” Drive Clean Indiana Executive Director Carl Lisek said. “Drive Clean Indiana will continue our formula for success to benefit all Hoosiers.”
The nonprofit says the new logo reflects the coalition’s roots in northern Indiana, showing the Lake Michigan coastline and Indiana dunes. The green road represents the coalition expanding its sustainable transportation programs throughout Indiana.
South Shore Clean Cities began managing the new statewide Clean Cities last February.
