BTTR Throw Away Your Car!

Nov 27, 2019

Lets face the facts-We love cars! From the time we are little kids we were taught that owning and driving a car was about the coolest thing you could do  that signaled you were an adult and that your status was all about what car you were driving. But the reality is our over-population of cars is literally choking the planet. There are lots of things we could do to be better stewards of our planet -Stop eating meat, turn down the thermostat, reduce-reuse-recycle, etc. But the one thing that we can do as individuals that has a big impact is reduce the number of car trips we make. How? It's BICYCLES TO THE RESCUE!
