Good question. SUV's are big and do use more gas than other cars. But we all do our best to be as green as we can with what we have. If you're getting lots of people into that SUV, then you're already doing better than if your parents drove each kid around separately. Carpooling is good!

Maybe you could try to drive as little as possible. Anytime you can walk or bike somewhere instead of drive, or do more things in one trip, do it! And if you feel like your transportation is not green, there are lots of other ways you can be super green! Check out our tips to see what I mean.
