1000 Flowers for the Planet - #271 Slow Down
With petrol/gas prices constantly rising we all need ways to save money. When driving at a moderate speed we use less fuel than when driving faster, so slow down. This will help your hip pocket, but it will also reduce our demands on finite energy resources, reduce carbon emissions and help improve the planet.
Furthermore, when you slow down you relax more and have a better opportunity to enjoy the journey which is good for your health and as I’ve said before, better health mean less pressure on our health systems, which saves even more resources and money. So there are lots of positive outcomes from the simple act of laying off that accelerator pedal.
