Why is Transportation a “Green” Issue?
Transportation is the second largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, accounting for about 31% of total U.S. CO2 emissions. There are many ways we can reduce our individual impact. Alternative options for transportation – such as biking, carpooling, or public bus systems – are often underutilized. Not only are these great options for reducing your carbon footprint, but they can be great options for saving money, staying active, and making your daily commute a little more interesting.
