Aren’t vehicles so amazing? We all love them because they are very efficient when it comes to taking us from one place to another, they also help us save a lot of time. Taking the bus or walking to the grocery store might take you an hour, however you know that driving will probably only take you 15 minutes. So yes we love our vehicles, they are also reliable and they enable us to be control of our schedules. But have you ever given a thought to air pollution and how your vehicle contributes to it?
Vehicles and Air pollution
Even though vehicles are amazing, they do contribute significantly to pollution, air pollution. As time goes on, our world faces more and more challenges because of pollution. Not only factories through the production of sulfur dioxide, burned coal or wildfire contribute to pollution, vehicles also do. And us as human beings, we are so dependant on our environment that the things that our environment suffers from also affect us. So the more polluted the environment is, the more people are facing various health issues. Vehicles produce exhaust gas through their exhaust pipes because of the combustion of fuels like gasoline, petrol diesel fuel and many more; exhaust gas is harmful for the environment. So how can you be a part of the change?
Being a part of the change
There are several ways you can be a part of the change. First of all, you can swap your vehicle for a more option. A more fuel-efficient vehicle uses less gas, and therefore it also produces less exhaust gas that contributes to air pollution. Another way of positively contributing to the fight against pollution is car-pulling. There is a certain feeling of independence and pride that comes with driving your own vehicle. But what if you start car-pulling with your husband or wife or even with some of your co-workers that live in the same area? So instead of using 3 or 4 different vehicles, you will only use one. This can help reduce the gas emissions. And lastly, you can walk instead of driving when you are going somewhere that is around the corner. This does not only help with reducing air production but it also helps you get more exercise. And even though it takes many people to improve the level of air pollution, you can make a difference, because change really starts with one person. So you can be a part of the change!
