Driving can be a stressful activity, especially when you live in a high-traffic area or do a lot of driving during rush hour.
Between soccer practice or ballet, taking kids to school and driving to and from work, it often seems like our lives are devoured by the time we spend in the car every day. What's more, every mile we drive contributes to polluting the air we breathe. Even if youвЂ™re too young to drive, you can still play a part in reducing the air pollution caused by traffic in your community. By organizing carpool for your sports team or a school field trip, you'll be helping cut down on gas, a costly resource, and reducing pollution.
Carpools can be a great way to care for our air, but they also have many other benefits.
Kids can help organize a carpool system to get to school or soccer practice. Make it easier for your busy parents by arranging for them to alternate driving with a friend, classmate or teammateвЂ™s parents. College students can create a вЂњride boardвЂќ at their school, to help students without cars to find transportation. Adults can organize a carpool system in their office.
You donвЂ™t need to organize a carpool to be a part of one. Find out if thereвЂ™s an existing carpool at your office you can join, or ask about a carpool system at your childвЂ™s school.
