6 Tips to Go Car Free

September 22nd is World Carfree Day!  Folks all over the world are pledging to ditch their cars and use bikes, transit, and their own two feet to get around.

Fuel and emissions from cars are major culprits in climate change. Cars are harming our oceans. They stress us out and cost us money in gas, maintenance, and parking. Tomorrow is a great opportunity to see what it’s like to get around without a gas guzzler.

World Carfree Day

It’s easy to get in on the action! You can join more than 1000 attendees worldwide on Facebook. Instead of hopping in the car for your daily commute tomorrow morning, just walk, bike, or take public transit to your destination.
