The US could keep nearly 941 million metric tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere if we committed to cutting our yearly emissions from transportation in half. The good news is, you can save several pounds of carbon emissions by switching up your ride for even just one day.
Switch out a solo car ride with a carpool, walk, bike, or public transportation for a day to keep CO2 out of the atmosphere (and fewer vehicles on the road save lives as well!). The goal through this DoSomething.org campaign is to collectively save 30,000 lbs of CO2.
