Green Your Holiday Shopping: Plan Your Transit
Tip #2: Plan your transit.
Instead of heading out on a one-off shopping trip every time you think of something to buy for someone, compile your gift ideas and plan to get ‘em all in one fell swoop — and one smart drive. Better yet, combine your shopping chores with a friend and carpool to conquer your lists together. Other ways to minimize driving during the shopping season include using public transit or using your own power, if possible. Ordering online can be greener as well. As a bonus, you’ll spend less time gritting your teeth while angling — and idling — for a hotly contested parking spot at the mall.
