Green Your Kids' School: Carpool

Carpool to school Do you see a lot of waste at your child's school? This week's tips are about how to help green your local educational institutions.

Tip #3: Bum a Ride

Dozens of people in your neighborhood make the same trip each morning and afternoon to get their kids to and from school. If it isn't feasible for your child to walk, bike, or take a bus, team up with your neighbors to safely fit as many students into one vehicle per trip. Each driver can claim a weekday; you'll get points for reducing pollution and for community-building — and you'll find yourself with some extra time most days of the week.

Tell us: How do your kids get to school?
