Happy Earth Day!

Green Tip #1: On this Earth Day, consider choosing a more fuel efficient vehicle. 
You can save 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year if your new car gets only three miles a gallon more than your current one. You can get up to 60 miles per gallon with a hybrid (like the one the Aquarium raffled off at its Green Gala!).

If you’re not in the market for a new car, you can still do your part! Keep your car tuned up
 – regular maintenance helps improve fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. When just one percent of car owners properly maintain their cars, nearly a billion pounds of carbon dioxide are kept out of the atmosphere. Check your tires weekly to make sure they’re properly inflated, because 
it can improve gas mileage by more than three percent. Since every gallon of gasoline saved keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, every increase in fuel efficiency makes a difference!
