Think Green, Think Hypermiling: Because "How we do things" matters too

In these times we live in, we are often consumed by the pursuit of material tangibles because quite frankly the social incentives are so relentless and pervasive. Some would add that in the end, we, as well as our personal and collective goals are best described by what we seek: be it a better job, a better house, a better car, world peace, and so on.

What about the "How" component?

Sure, many folks will acknowledge that "How we do something" is very significant too, not only because it affects the quality of these goals, but also because it is has the potential of transforming us as well as the world around us.

It is on this note, that I would like to leave you with a thought and an invitation:
  • As you commute to work during May 30 to June 5 (2010 Commuter Challenge), please think about how's your driving doing? If you are not sure, then how about taking the bus or carpool while benefiting our environment at the same time?

If telecommuting, carpooling, public transportation or riding a bike to work aren't viable options, then may we interest you in Hypermiling as an alternative?

Well, why not?

Our friends at Backbone magazine tried it and they liked the results.

Want way more kilometres out of your tank of gas?

Cheers :)
