Carpooling: Making Commutes a Little More Green

Commuting is an activity most people will have to do at one point or another. Whether it be to school, work, or traveling to and from activities with kids, people everywhere commute. Most of the time all of this commuting is done via automobile, and not only does this get expensive, but it is also harmful to the environment. The exhaust in automobiles emits greenhouse gases, which are harmful to the environment. The release of these gases creates a real problem for the eco-friendly commuter. However, there is a solution out there that can, at the very least, reduce the amount of harmful gases commuters release. This solution is carpooling. Basically, carpooling works by eliminating some cars from the road, which in turn decreases the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. Carpooling also contributes to lessened traffic, and saves gas money.
