Green Your Garage Sale: Discount for Eco-Friendly Travel

Familywalkingwithbikes Turning your trash into someone else's treasure is as easy as having a garage sale. The next time you organize one, consider this week’s tips.

Tip #3: Pollution-Free Perks

Encourage neighbors to visit your garage sale on foot, by bike, or via other emissions-free modes of transportation for a discount on items purchased. Those environmentally conscious and markdown-worthy excursions will prevent possible air pollution and reduce energy use. To include sale patrons who may come from farther away, consider giving a discount to those who carpool or take public transit, too.

Tell us: What is your favorite mode of green transportation?
