Better Driving - For You And The Planet
Travelling is one of the activities that most Aussies enjoy at Christmas. Whether it's driving to the other side of town or the other side of the country, we love catching up with friends and family.
But driving contributes more than 80 percent of carbon monoxide emissions in urban Australia and petrol prices are expensive.
Planet Ark's Better Motoring Guide provides some simple actions to help you save fuel, money and emissions, reduce waste and look after your own safety every time you drive.
Easy actions include leaving the car at home if possible, recycling your old car batteries, servicing your car regularly, car sharing, or removing unnecessary heavy items from the boot.
The full version of '12 actions for better motoring' can be found on 12dos.planetark.org.
