Did you know that transportation is the single greatest source of carbon emissions in the U.S.? Walking or biking instead of driving just ONE DAY a week could reduce your personal transportation emissions by 25% (and it’s good for your health)! Carpooling and public transit are also great alternatives. Will you challenge your family and friends to give it a try? If you already bike or take the bus to work, offer to ride with co-workers who want to try it out but aren’t sure they’re ready!
