You deserve a pat on the back
Every day you board a bus or light rail train do you stop and think, “Today, I’m helping save the planet by reducing my carbon footprint?” Probably not, and some people might wonder, what exactly is a carbon footprint? Actions such as driving cars, heating our homes, riding on planes, and simply turning on a light consume energy that produces harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
In America, if just one person in five switched to public transportation daily, the savings would be greater than the combined emissions from all chemical manufacturing and metal processing industries. So the next time you board a bus or train, take pride in knowing you’re making a significant contribution to a greener planet.
