Living an eco-friendly life is very important to me, but it can be difficult at times. I try to do little things to make sure that I’m treating the world right. Here are some of the things I do.

Transportation

I don’t own a car. This is mostly because I have the luxury of living in a city. I can take public transportation, ride my bike, or even walk when my destination is not too far. Not only is this a great way to help the planet, but it’s also fun too.

I love taking public transportation because it means I am able to get so much more reading done. Sometimes I’ll read more than 2 books a week because of all the time I spend on trains. It’s great.
