Gotta Start Somewhere

Many people are so stuck in their ways that making a change in their routine sounds impossible. However, with the effect of humans taking a huge toll on the Earth, we have no choice but to examine what we can do to less our impact.

One of the easiest changes that can be made is being sure to group your errands together. This not only saves time, but also lessens the time spent driving your car, which is a huge source of pollution. if your errands don't involve stocking up on groceries or picking up a piece of furniture, there is also a very good chance that you can even do all your errands while using public transportation - even better!

You can even go one step further and change the way you go to work everyday, on top of doing your occasional errands. Many places have carpools you can join. The chart above shows how much that helps. You could also bike or walk, getting your body moving while helping make the air better to breathe!
