How to be eco-friendly and mobile at the same time?

The end of the 18th century. The history of the first automobiles begins to be written in the 18th century. Around this time, experiments with steam-powered automobiles (designed by James Watt and Nicolas Joseph Cugnot) were conducted. in the early 19th century, steam engines were still in widespread use, but they gradually became faster. Today, these machines can be seen at best in vintage or technical museums and have little in common with today\’s automobiles.

Today, the topic of ecology and car travel is very popular. Many of us are accustomed to getting in the car in the morning and driving to work and back in the afternoon. We drive our children to school and clubs, and we routinely drive to shopping and other places. How can we stay mobile and not burden the planet?

Minimize car trips. If that is not necessary, choose other modes of transportation. Sure, there\’s nothing wrong with driving to the store for a big shopping trip, but what about going to the nearest store to buy a roll of cake? You have the legs to use it.

Driving to work is a great way to save our country. Arrange to carpool with a neighbor. Even if it\’s just the two of you, it\’s better than each of you driving your own car. Plus, it\’s a 50% reduction. Not only do you save the planet, you save money.

Mass transit is so widespread in our country that it would be a shame not to take advantage of it. Whether you choose to travel by train or by bus, if you have good access to transportation and have no problem commuting to work or school by bus or train, you should choose the latter. It is much more environmentally friendly and cheaper. Also, commuting by public transportation is much cheaper than driving a car every day.

Whichever method you choose, you should be aware that car travel is very prevalent and often unnecessarily frequent, even for those who can easily use public transportation or bicycles.
