If you own a swimming pool, you’re lucky, but if you’re finding that you’re not making use of it, consider an early shut down.  In addition to the hundreds or thousands of gallons of water a pool uses (evaporating at an average 3” per day), there are harsh chemicals used to keep pools safe from germs and bacteria and any pool owner will tell you, heating those suckers ain’t cheap.  Benching your pool will not only save you money, but will reduce the strain on important resources, cut back on waste-water toxins and reduce your carbon footprint. Now that’s refreshing! Photo by Jesse Hove

Comments Off on caution: rackless driver!

Winter’s over and the slopes have (mostly) slushed up for the year – so why are you still carting that ski rack around on the roof of your car? Even an empty ski or cargo rack adds significant drag, making your car less aerodynamic, which consumes more fuel.

do the splits.

Comments Off on do the splits.

Here’s a quick and easy way to reduce your impact while traveling:  split a taxi!  While you’re standing in the cab line at the airport, ask your fellow travelers if any of them are going to the same part of town as you.  If they are, tell the driver you need to make two stops and off you go.  Carpooling saves gas and emissions and in this case, will save you money too.  You should use your best judgement when deciding to share a cab (safety first!), but you’ll have the driver in the car too, so it’s not like hitchhiking or anything.  Give it a whirl!  All you’ve got to lose is cab fare.
