When you consider the average person's carbon footprint one of the most obvious ways to become significantly more eco friendly is to consider how you travel around. So take the time to investigate what options are available to you in terms of eco travel and compare them to see where money can be saved. Liftsharing and carpooling is also one of the effective ways to simply cut the down the usage of fuel. Make use of Rail cards and bus discount schemes, which are often provided by the public transport companies themselves. Booking ticket in advance can save you nearly 50% of the ticket's cost and if the distance is short, try to go by cycle or just have a nice walk.
