Carpool! It's good for the environment, and sometimes it can even be kind of enjoyable! ;) It also saves gas money, which can be a great help now that gas is so expensive. It's not always easy to carpool, because people aren't going to the same destination, but if more people did it there'd certainly be a lot less harmful gases like carbon monoxide. Especially now that I'm in high school, people are carpooling a lot less. Being 16 means there are a lot more kids driving to school instead of taking buses, and state laws mean that unless we're 17, we can't drive anyone else anywhere! Parents don't want to drive their kids anymore, and since we can't drive together, a lot of us will take three cars and follow each other to wear we're going. It's not exactly great for the environment. However, now that my friends are starting to turn 17, I'm going to make an effort to carpool to a lot more places rather than going on my own!
Also, 8 more tabs for the count! If you're wondering how the Monthly Challenge to recycle more and waste less is going, it's been good! I'll put some pictures up at the end of the month, but basically what I've been doing is collecting all of the cans in my house (definitely making a point to!), and I've certainly saved a lot that would have gone in the trash otherwise. I'm planning on exchanging those cans for change that I can donate...maybe I'll add that to the count at some point!
