Top 5 Green Road Trip Tips

  • 5 of 5

Open a window: When you’re in heavy traffic, Healthy Child Healthy World recommends cracking your window slightly to reduce carbon monoxide buildup inside your car. If you’re driving all day, make sure to get some fresh air by either opening the windows for part of your trip, or planning brief breaks outdoors throughout the ride.

I don't see why you should put sunscreen when you're in the car. UV light cannot go thorough glas. That's why you can never get a tan through a glass pane.

These are more like health tips, not Eco friendly tips. All of these things should be applied to everyday life, and certainly not just restricted to longer road trips. I was expecting things more like, don't take your petrol guzzling suv, buy a hybrid. Plan the most efficient route. Really, how is using sanitizing cream environmentally friendly? It's a chemical.

as much as i agree with those tips and Ashley's additions, its not green tips like i was hoping for. I am taking a two week trip around my state to all the haunted sites this November and i was hoping for some eco friendly driving tips
