Back to School : Transportation


back to school

It’s time for a new school year! Now that you went green by using your re-useable bags for all of your back to school shopping you may be thinking, “how can I stay green throughout the school year?” Over the next few weeks we will explore some great ideas for carrying your summer green into a new school year!. Here are a few tips to help you get back to school!

  • Walk or bike to school. Only 2 1/2% of kids who live close to school walk or bike. By not taking a car to school, just that 2 1/2% are saving nearly 100,000 gallons of gas…per day!
  • Take the bus. A typical bus can carry 54 kids. That is 54 less cars on the road every morning and afternoon!
  • Carpool. If you can’t take the bus, and you live too far to walk this is a great alternative. For every passenger in a carpool you are reducing environmental impact by 50%!

For More information on staying green throughout the school year and in every other way, read The Green Book by Elizabeth Rogers & Thomas M. Kostigen – Three Rivers press
