7 easy ways to green your commute

Reduce the carbon footprint of your daily travel

Carpool with co-workers

Thirty million: that’s the number of empty seats travelling to work each day in Canada, according to Carpool.ca. Help fill them by carpooling (also known as ridesharing), an effective way to reduce air pollution and save money, since passengers share gas and vehicle expenses. If your workplace doesn’t have a carpooling program, take it upon yourself to see who’s interested, or find a carpool partner at a site like Smart Commute’s Carpool Zone, Carpool.ca, Carpool World or PickupPal. Calculate how much you could save by participating in a rideshare.
