Traveling to Reduce Pollution
One of the easiest ways to cut down air pollution and reduce greenhouse
gases is to reduce the amount we use our cars. We need to rethink when and why we
use the car.
- For short trips, try walking or riding a bike.
- You can take public
transport for some longer trips.
- Try sharing car
trips with friends or family who are traveling the same way — this is
should have their cars checked regularly, because well-tuned cars
create less pollution.
- When your family is buying a new car,
choose a fuel efficient model, or one that uses a cleaner, alternative
fuel source. Don't buy a car that's bigger than your family needs.
