Today is April 22, 2013, and we wish you a Happy Earth Day. What are some of the things you can do with your car, truck, van, or SUV to be friendly to the environment? Here are six tips that you can use to help save fuel, keep our air cleaner, and help out Mother Nature:
Reduce your carbon footprint by leaving your car at home twice a week. Leaving your car at home twice a week can cut greenhouse gas emissions by 1,600 pounds per year.
Work from home. You'll reduce air pollution and traffic congestion - and save money.
Don’t let your vehicle idle. The exhaust from cars, buses, trucks, and work vehicles can pollute air in and around the vehicle, and can enter school buildings through air intakes, doors, and open windows.
If you’re not already driving a hybrid, electric or biodiesel vehicle, consider looking into one. Green power produces less carbon emissions, reduces air pollution, and helps protect against future costs or scarcity of fossil fuels.
Ride the MST Jazz bus around Monterey and Seaside. Use public transportation, carpool, walk, or bike whenever possible to reduce air pollution and save on fuel costs.
Proper maintenance reduces waste! Keep your vehicles in good working order and follow the manufacturer's recommendations for service and maintenance.
