Green Volunteering Week: Transportation
Volunteering your time and expertise for a worthy cause is a rewarding experience. This week we offer tips to help you give greener.
Tip #3: Volunteer to Put More Bikes on the Road
Carbon dioxide released from transportation accounts for about one-third of U.S. emissions, so any volunteer endeavor that puts fewer cars on the road can make a big difference in the fight against global warming. Volunteering your time or donating used bike parts to a community bicycle organization is a great way to make a difference. Even if your do-good gig doesn't involve two-wheeled transport, you can reduce your carbon footprint by carpooling with other volunteers or opting for public transportation.
