Go Green - Walk

Go Green, Walk - women walking photo Walking leaves behind zero carbon footprint. Short car trips emit a lot of harmful tailpipe exhaust, since vehicles are usually not warmed up. Walking is a great way to reduce these "cold starts," since many car trips can be replaced by walking. Walking to work, school, or shopping trips is also an easy way to integrate exercise into your daily life, while conserving fuel and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.



Want to green your commute? Ridesharing is 2-6 people in a carpool or 7-15 people in a vanpool. It’s a green travel alternative because you help reduce the total number of cars on the road. You save time and money and the earth gets a breath of fresh air.
