Sustainable transport, any means of transport with low impact on the environment, is a term many people have started to gravitate to as we search for greener ways to commute and travel. Cars rank as the number one culprit to greenhouse gas emission, not only the way they are made but the sheer volume of them.
It is time to take charge and curb our cars in favor of more eco-friendly methods of transportation. Using public transportation, walking, biking, carpooling, and telecommuting are great ways to reduce our carbon footprint when commuting. Collaborative consumption, or car-sharing, is also a great solution for how we can eliminate pollution and improve the climate and limit the number of cars on the road.
According to an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report, among all countries, the United States generates 94-95% of the total emissions from transportation. Although cars are a necessity, there are other ways – easy, green alternatives — to driving that will slow down catastrophic effects on the planet. The EPA, NASA, and the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) agree greenhouse gases contribute to global climate change, causing droughts, forest fires, and heat waves felt throughout the world.
