Car Free Day: mini-mission
Because my recent post about driving less received so much positive feedback and interest, I thought it fitting that the next mini-mission be about your car.
Park It – This mini-mission is a commitment to drive less. Choose one day during the week and don’t drive. You may have to arrange your week differently to carpool, ride your bike or take public transportation.
On my first official car free day, I decided to stay home. I worked from home all day, and made an effort not to leave the house in my car. There always seems to be a reason to “run out”. Today, my daughter wanted to go to the pool with friends and instead of driving her, she rode her bike. When I was making lunch, I realized I was out of my favorite veggie-burger buns and instead of running out to the store, I ate something different.
Challenge yourself to stay out of your car one day a week. The planet will thank you and so will your wallet.
