Do you have to drive a hybrid vehicle or electrical car to drive green?   Sure, "green" cars are cool and are sparking innovation and eco awareness, but approaching your current vehicle with a sustainability mindset can also help to save cost and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.   

Within our eco friendly training, we are often approached by those requesting resources and guidance to incorporate sustainability concepts into their daily living.  For most, this desire is sparked by a growth in eco awareness and an interest in saving money.  Transportation is an area that addresses both. 
Check out the following suggestions to see how you can reduce costs, reduce emissions, and live a sustainable lifestyle. 
Increase your fuel economy:
  • If you don't know, find out what mileage your current vehicle gets by visiting the EPA's Green Vehicle Guide.
