Environmental Impact: Poll Results

December 11, 2009
First off, thanks to all who voted in the current poll! The poll asked: When buying a car, how much does environmental impact have on you? And here are the results out of 60 votes: A little (40% – 24 votes) Not at all (28% – 17 votes) A lot (18% – 11 votes) Every bit of difference (14% – 8 votes) It seems like the majority of people care (in some way or another – little or big) about the impact cars have on our environment. There is still time to get your vote in … or leave a comment on this post. Did the environment play into your last purchase? How much do you consider it when going to look for a car?

Do you care about your carbon footprint?

December 7, 2009
What’s your carbon footprint? How much impact do you have on the environment? Whether you’re an advocate for “greener” ways or just strolling through day by day … you make a difference. According to, “A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc.” After reading several articles discussing greener cars and environmental impact, I’ve learned that studies show women are a little more conscientious about the effects of cars and the environment. For all you men out there, a study showed that women are more likely to talk to someone with a green car, rather than some high-line sports ride! Think about that, guys! So tell me, do you worry about your carbon footprint when buying a car? If you drive a hybrid or a gas-friendly vehicle then send me a photo to post on my site!
