Sustainable living is something we’ve all heard about. We all want to live long and healthy lives while leaving a healthy planet for our kids and loved ones. However, the execution of these ideas can be difficult. How can we be happy, healthy, and respectful of our planet while also juggling all of our other obligations? Down below we’ve written a guide on sustainable transportation intended to make all of your trips to run errands stress-free and green!
Transportation is a crucial part of everyone’s life. We all move around on a daily basis so being thoughtful about our transport habits is something that everyone can do. This starts by utilizing public transportation.
Using public transport, such as a bus system or metro, reduces the number of people driving cars. This decreases emissions, alleviates traffic, and reduces noise pollution. This benefits the health of all people and pets in our communities. In addition, using public transport over large spans of time saves a ton of money and resources. The money you spend on gas could be going towards your next vacation or weekend trip to see your relatives!
Public Transportation is amazing, but it’s not always ideal. Your area may not be served by a subway or bus system or you may be traveling outside of the limits of the public transportation network that you use. When you do have to drive, there are a few things you can do to be eco-conscious.
Plan your routes out beforehand, in order to minizine driving distance between the places you’ll be going. Try to make fewer trips by consolidating them. Instead of going out to one store every day, try to think ahead at the beginning of the week in order to consolidate all of your errands into one outing. This reduces the driving distance by minimizing your trips to and from your home. If possible, carpool with those around you. You’ll be reducing your carbon footprint while also getting to spend time with others around you.
Strong bonds and contact with your neighbors or other community members can go a long way towards a happier and more fulfilling life. Get to know those people who you always pass on the sidewalk or see at the grocery store. Whether you’re driving or taking the train, a little thought goes a long way!
