Drive Less

I asked a youth this week what he would do to reduce carbon emissions and his reply was, “Eliminate cars.” While that may be unpractical for most people right now, I like his way of thinking. We can certainly do our part by driving less.

When going out for groceries don’t just shop and go home. Plan to complete all your other errands at the same time (banking, post office, dry cleaning, etc.) to eliminate going out multiple times. Whenever possible, car pool or take public transit to reduce the number of cars on the road. Better yet, bike or walk and get in better shape while you are at it!
