If you drove 10 miles less each week for a year, you could save about $75 in gas and reduce climate pollution by 485 pounds.
There are plenty of other ways to travel! Walking and biking, of course, have the added benefit of improving your cardiovascular help and burning calories. You can also ride the bus or carpool.
