Cars are Coffins
Day 3 of No Impact Week: Transportation
(I must say I am being very hypocritical today, as I am driving back and forth from the city to the boyfriends house to help today to help him move...but using a car is unavoidable in our modern life at times. As always it's not about perfection, it's about reduction! Besides yesterday the boyfriend and I biked 40 miles and hiked up a bluff- low impact entertainment all day.)
All right, the last two days were fact heavy so today is your break! Cut out the car today and get outside and have some fun, instead of mindless driving.
Up your calorie burn and walk, run, rollerblade, scoot, or tricycle to your destinations today :) or take the bus and read, people watch or dance to your music during your commute instead of driving.
Feeling overwhelmed by the facts and statistics from the week so far? Don’t lose hope! The world is not coming to an end, be a part of the 2% solution. Sign the petition to help reduce carbon emissions by 2% each year the next 40 years.
Do you drive a car daily? Could you replace some car trips with walking or biking?
