A busy show with our guest Green Dude, Bob Leonard, founder of is a wonderful website on how drive green without having to drive a hybrid or an electric car.

Here are 5 things you can do to be more fuel efficient with ANY car:

  • Did you know that cruise control is a big saver of fuel and your carbon output
  • We all know that it is important to check the air pressure on your tires. Get your own gauge so it is easy to check more frequently
  • Fill your tires with 100% Nitrogen. Yes, Nitrogen, lasts much longer
  • Install Microgreen Oil Filter  It extends the range of your oil change up to 30,000 and save up to $120 a year!
  • Wiper Blades made out of silicon rather than rubber which lasts much longer

There’s much more on – including a fun green auto product giveaway!

The Sleeping Naked is Green segment focused on pumpkins of course! Lots of nutritional facts about pumpkins and a few things I bet you didn’t know about pumpkins. Hear just the fun 5-min segment by clicking here.

As always, please visit our website for LOTS of relevant links & resources from the show – Green Divas website.

Hope you’ll listen to this broadcast!

one of my pet peeves is the number of people in my apartment complex who on winter mornings turn their cars on to warm them up while they go back inside for sometimes as long as 15 or 20 minutes.
