Today is Earth Day, a national holiday established for events to support the protection of the Earth. This day of all days is truly the time to “be green.” One of the biggest and easiest ways we can do this is to change our car habits.
Here are some tips to make your car eco-friendly in honor of Earth Day:
- Carpool to work, school, or to run errands, reducing car emissions overall.
- Reduce the weight of your car, allowing it to use less energy.
- If possible – turn off the A/C, which increases fuel costs, and roll up windows, which decrease vehicles’ aerodynamic efficiency when down.
- Be sure to get your car checked out regularly, as there are many things that could be wrong with your vehicle, causing it to run inefficiently, that only a professional would catch.
