On the Road

One of the biggest sources of pollution in the western world is the automobile. Reducing the use of our cars will help but in many places, it is not practical. We depend on our cars for much of our daily life that replacing them is unlikely in the near future. VW has had an environmental program in place for many years from which they developed fuel efficient engines. They also have a program to recycle old vehicles. Many car manufacturers have begun to build electric or electric/gas hybrid cars. Toyota launched the 'Prius' in 1999 www.prius.toyota.com and General Motors has the 'EV1' www.gmev.com . If one of these vehicles is not in your near future, then at the very least, try to combine errands into single trips to save fuel (and money), or consider walking or cycling.
