Making Your Community Eco Friendly and Stylish
One of the most distinctly modern concerns of our time seems to be that of the environment. In truth, many people have been aware of our impact on the environment since the sixties.
Still, there’s something about the issue that feels very modern. Perhaps it’s because the bigger industries have finally started to pay attention. And, as a result, we’re now seeing great, stylish products that help us stay friendly to the environment.
There’s no denying that transport is one of the biggest contributors to environmental damage.
When the modern man travels to work these days, he will find that more scrutiny than ever is being placed upon how he travels to work.
One of the problems here, of course, is that the ‘greener’ commuting methods have hardly been as stylish as the modern man might need them to be.
But all of that seems to be changing. If you want to make your commute green while maintaining a sense of style, it’s now much more feasible to do so. Here are some of the things you should be keeping in mind.
Cycling to work is now easier than ever
With so much environmental concerns, governments have now made it easier for cyclists to get from one place to another in busy cities.
But perhaps what has put businessmen off of this method is the physical effort involved. After all, you don’t want to be sweating into your suit, or giving yourself irreversible helmet hair!
However, you can minimize the amount of time you spend on a bicycle by combining the travel method with public transport.
If you leave a little earlier than usual, you shouldn’t have a problem fixing your bike on a train or a bus. Of course, you could also consider a folding bike to get rid of that problem entirely. Read more at http://dahon.com/bikes/.
Scooters as a viable transport option
Perhaps you haven’t been on a scooter since you were a child or a teenager. It may not strike you as a very practical travelling option. But, like cycling before it, there have been plenty of advances in the fielding of scooters, too.
Electric scooters not only reduce the amount of physical effort you have to put into the ride. They also provide you with the speed you need to commute effectively.
After all, manual scooters were never the fastest option, were they? Of course, I haven’t even mentioned the seated options. You can see more of what I’m talking about at http://theelectricrider.com/electric-scooter-buying-guide/.
Premium electric vehicles
Electric vehicles were never seen as something particularly stylish. If a modern businessman were to be seen riding around in one of those strange things, they’d be laughed out the office, right?
Well, perhaps you already know it, but that’s no longer the case. As a modern man, I’m guessing you heard the name Elon Musk pop up from time to time.
You may know that he’s the head of the Tesla car manufacturer. You may even be familiar with those sexy Tesla car models. Did you know that all of Tesla’s cars are electric?
You can see it for yourself: electric cars no longer have to go hand-in-hand with strange looks. See more at https://www.tesla.com/models.
