Why selling your car makes you Eco-friendly
There are many reasons why you may want to sell your car, but did you know that selling your car is a great way to join the Green Movement?
Cut back on carbon emissions by selling your car
Selling your car will cut back on carbon emissions in a more significant way than you may realize. According to the U.S Census Bureau, it takes 600 gallons to run one car for just one year.
For the past 20 years, a whopping 60% of the total CO2 emissions released into our atmosphere have come directly from cars and motor fuel. It is very important for this large percentage to drop in order to fight global warming, and you can greatly contribute to this effort when you sell your car.
Your Eco-friendly Life after you sell your car
So you decided to sell your car to support the Green Movement. Now what?
Sell your car, use public transportation
Selling your car can certainly be a big life adjustment for many people but when you sell your car and utilize public transportation, you will share one vehicle’s CO2 emissions with many people.
Even if public transportation isn’t exactly abundant in your town, carpooling can be a great way to cut back from your CO2 emissions. If you are like the average American household, you can sell your car and still have one to use for carpooling.
If you can walk or ride a bike to your destination, you will be cutting back on emissions even more. Selling your car can help you practice valuable, fat-burning exercise and begin to lead a much healthier life.
Want to be eco-friendly but really can’t sell your car?
If life without a car would just be too difficult, you can still be eco-friendly with your car decisions when you buy a used car. By buying a used car, you will be the cause for one less new car being on the road.
