Celebrate Earth Day!
A day to reflect on this wonderful world we call earth. However, there are billions of humans living here and many don’t know that they are harming the very thing that keeps everyone and everything alive.
It’s time to take a closer look at a couple of things people need to focus on to help mother earth.
Reduce Water Consumption
In areas like California, water reservoirs are at or below 50% capacity. You may not live in California, but your water usage will still impact the environment which to an extent impacts us all.
3 tips to help reduce how much water you use:
- Leave the sink faucet off while you are brushing your teeth.
- Try to shower like this: water on to get wet, water off to soap up, water on to rinse (reduces 17 gallons per shower down to 1).
- Ditch the grass: The average lawn uses 125 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet in the hot summer months.
Reduce Air Pollution
#1 Problem = Cars, Trucks & SUVs
For every gallon of gas burned, it creates 20 pounds of carbon dioxide that’s emitted into the air we breath – yuck!
E-Bike, E-Scooter or Walk
Buy an Electric Bike, E-Scooter or E-Moped
To change your transportation, go green, and reduce your carbon footprint… you just need to use a light electric vehicle on a regular basis.
We recommend that you make a purchase since many areas have expensive ride shares or no rental options.
To help, we are offering $50 off a purchase of $500 or more. To redeem, use this coupon in our checkout: earthday21
Many e-bikes will travel around 45 miles on a full charge and will reach a top speed of 20-28mph depending on their class.
For Earth Day 2021, we are recommending the Segway Ninebot G30LP Max E-Scooter. You can travel 25 miles and reach speeds of 18.6mph
For when you need to travel greater distances at higher speeds, an e-moped can go 100 miles and reach a top speed of 45mph.
