Little Thing #6: Turn your commute green!

If you can, try turning your commute green for one day (or more!). Sometimes, we get so used to driving from point A to point B, we forget that we have options. Check in with your coworkers, can you carpool? Another idea is to walk or bike to work. For this, you’ll need to prepare and give yourself some more time in the mornings, but your environment and cardiovascular system with thank you!  

Other tips include: 
Combining your commute with your errands – saving you time and energy in the long-run 
Invest in an energy efficient vehicle, such as hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles (EVs) 
Avoid letting your car idle for long periods of time (think: school pick up)
