Hit the Road

As the driver in the family, Izz asked me to tell you some things to make driving greener. Nudge or nag your parents about this stuff.

  • Don't drive if you can take public transport.
  • Better yet, don't drive if you can cycle or walk.
  • Don't buy a big car if you can use a small one.
  • Buy a hybrid if you can afford it.
  • Keep an existing car serviced and running — it's greener than buying a new one.
  • Don't take unnecessary journeys: plan ahead.
  • Carpool!
  • Don't idle the car if you're parked. Cough! Cough!
