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?
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 carbonfootprint.com, “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!
