My series, 31 Days of Less Waste continues:
Day 3 of 31 days of less waste. and another day of solidarity with the Paris Climate Summit. Change and saving our planet starts with all of us! Today’s post is on driving conservatively. Don’t waste gas, become an ECO driver!
What can we all do to reduce the emissions we put in the air we breathe?
- Drive less: I am fortunate to have good bus service, and can walk to shopping and many of my activities. Our car often stays in the garage for weeks at a time. We even hauled our Thanksgiving turkey home on the bus!
2. Car pool: Most cars have only one person. Not only is this boring, but it is wasteful! You can change this. Make travel fun, offer rides to co-workers, classmates, and others going to your events. Even one-day a week would make a difference!
3. Become an ECO driver: Drive the speed limit and accelerate gently.
4. Maintain your car: Keep tires inflated, filters replaced, and make sure your automobile/truck aren’t emitting excess pollution.
