i think all will be traveling place to place.
a person should think by his own mind how to save the environment
pollution is there but we should try our level best to decrease it.

Unfortunately, it’s still cheaper than public transit and on our budget it’s all we could afford. In a nod towards environmentalism, I used a reusable coffee mug and carried home everything that could be recycled. On the plus side we’ve been a one car couple since February of last year – that’s definitely lowered our carbon emissions.

any mode of transport private or mass,
it is polluting environment more or less whatever…..

so i have decided that its better to ride on a bicycle which is a truly green-vehicle.

You give this man hope in the face of despair. I try to abide by the principle: “Live simply that others may simply live”.

As a woman, I decided at a very early age (18) that I would not have any kids simply due to the environmental effects of having one…and b/c I felt (and still feel, some 18 years later) that any kid I brought into this world would be less than thankful for my selfish reason for doing so. I could imagine the kid saying “didn’t you know how bad things were? But yet you thought it was the “natural” thing to do?”

I have not lost my hope for humanity…but I’m not willing to invest anything else into our earth’s future other than my time and energy.

Where there is posible i travel on my foot. Otherwise by public transport like bus or cng auto rikshaw or cng cab.
