If you’ve been thinking about making some changes to make your life a little greener, we bet you’ve already tried the basics, like replacing your paper towels with a spongy, reusable alternative or starting to compost instead of tossing your food scraps in the trash. But have you considered hopping on your bike instead of taking your car to visit the farmer’s market?
Whether you’re sticking to your New Year’s resolution to live a greener lifestyle or you’re tired of sitting in traffic during your morning commute, you’ve probably wondered once or twice in your life if riding a bike is more eco-friendly than driving a car. And, surprisingly, it’s a bit of a tricky question to answer. But once you’re armed with all the necessary facts and figures, you’ll be happy to know that two wheels is certainly a greener mode of transportation than anything with four.
