Cool Campaign April Challenge

April Challenges: Transportation

Unlike other challenges, the ones relating to transportation are the most important for you to tackle, because modifying your transportation habits will have the largest impact on greenhouse gas emissions. Here's why: Each gallon of gas spent to propel the average car produces 19.564 lbs of CO2, which amounts to approximately one pound of CO2 per mile.

How do you choose among the challenges?

It's up to you and your family, of course. Over time, we hope you'll tackle all of the challenges presented by the campaign. To achieve real lifestyle change, small easy steps are a good way to begin for most people.
