Challenge For All Of You

Well its that time of the week again when I stopped at Small Footprints and saw his challenge. I am always eager to help with what ever bit I can do for my environment but this time the challenge is a bit tricky. This weeks challenge said:

For one full day this week, don't use (or ride in) a car. That's right ... leave the car at home and either walk, ride a bicycle or take public transportation (or even ... stay home). One full day ... 24 hours ... no car.

OR ... if you are already car free, write a post about not using a car. Include such topics as how to make it work, drawbacks and solutions, and why it's better for the environment.

Now, anyone who is capable of doing this, please take up this challenge. Walk, cycle or use public transport if possible.

While I would love to do this, it is really next to impossible for me to do this as my office is at a bit of distance from my house and the situation of public transport is really bad. The only other way would be to take a cycle rickshaw. I have a friend also dependent on me for going to office. But I still have something for all of you. I have this challenge a bit modified for people like me.

If you go to an office and have someone from your locality going to the same office or going to an office in the same locality please pool in
and
Every time you stop at a red light for more than 20 seconds, Turn off your car.

Once again the source of my inspiration for every environment related bit is small footprints, this is not my idea its his challenge a bit modified.
Come on, Lets change the world....

I really appreciate how you have made this challenge work for you. After all, the whole idea is to reduce emissions ... and your suggestion does exactly that! Brilliant!

Small Footprints: Really anything you can do for the environment is just a small step. You keep bringing on the ideas :)

Wrahool: Since you already a bit car free may be you can complete other part of the challenge--
if you are already car free, write a post about not using a car. Include such topics as how to make it work, drawbacks and solutions, and why it's better for the environment.
