Today’s green living tip: drive less. Commit to driving less. Look for alternative transportation options. Car sharing and bike riding are both alternatives that make sense for the environment. Bike riding can also be a great way to get in shape and stay that way while commuting.
Public transportation and carpooling are also options to consider. We don’t all have to own cars and drive them everywhere. Look for ways to walk, bike ride or share. (Here are ways to reduce transportation costs.)
While driving less can mean you’ll save more, there’s no real financial savings in keeping your car and using public transportation. To actually realize the savings, you need to actually get rid of your car. Think about car sharing as an option to owning. With car sharing and bike riding, you’ll save on both the environment and get exercise.
How do you drive less? Do you ride your bike or walk places?
