On the Road
We all have busy schedules and we all need to get around. But the way we travel really matters, because our greatest impact on the environment may be when we’re on the road.

The On the Road section is divided into three strategies: 1) Drive smarter; 2) Drive less; and 3) Leave the Car at Home. In the first, you’ll find advice on how to improve your gas mileage and make smart decisions on the road. In the second, you’ll find tips on how to drive fewer miles through techniques such as carpooling and local shopping.  Finally, the third strategy looks at ways to stop driving altogether—such as walking, riding public transit, and telecommuting.

We hope these ideas send you on the road to a more sustainable future!
