EARTH DAY

On this day... Lets walk. or ride our bikes along the way.

A recent US Census Bureau study reveals that 76.4 percent of Americans drove to work alone on daily commutes.

According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, about one-fifth of all U.S. emissions are caused by our automobiles. The group also estimates that one gallon of gasoline emits about 24 pounds of CO2 and other harmful gasses into the atmosphere. Imagine the amount of emissions would be saved if just a fraction of Americans walked, biked or carpooled to work on Earth Day.
