For most of us, the part of our workday with the greatest environmental impact takes place outside the office: the commute. The average person drives about 3,000 miles to and from work every year. Not driving just one day a week can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by about 8 pounds per week. That adds up to about 400 pounds of CO2 per year. The less you drive, the more you’ll save. For daily commuting, consider options like telecommuting (working from home via phone or over the Internet) that can reduce the stress of commuting, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save you money.
