Road Rules…for an eco-friendly trip
Oh the road trip: as American as apple pie, football, and Austin.
This past weekend for fall break, Austin, Blake, and I piled into the car and journeyed 230 miles west to his hometown of Hays, KS (fondly known as Hays, Amuurica).
Traditionally the classic road trip requires a few essential elements: gas station snacks, emergency restroom stops, and multiple rounds of I-spy. For this trip, we tried to minimize our carbon footprint by employing some methods to maximize our gas mileage (a round trip to Hays generates .2 tons of CO2).
Here’s a video of some of the things we did!
Another way to minimize your environmental impact? Pack your own road trip snacks! Not only are you reducing the amount of waste you generate from snack wrappers and containers, but you also get to enjoy fresh, healthy (or not so healthy) snacks.
