It's World Environment Day (June 5th) and car drivers are being asked to do a bit more to reduce their carbon footprint today.
Automotive software company Autofinity is calling on motorists to pledge to do just #OneThing today, from car-pooling to simply cycling, walking, or using public transport instead of driving.
Pledging to save fuel by inflating car tires, removing heavy objects or driving without air con would also count.
Or, if you're having your ride repaired, Autofinity suggests requesting recycled car parts. Apparently sourcing pre-loved parts is easier these days thanks to modern software and come from end-of-life vehicles which have been professionally dismantled, which makes them cheaper than new ones and better for the environment.
"People should be aware that they have a choice when it comes to replacement vehicle parts. And once they are, I'd hope most would make the wallet and environmentally friendly choice and opt for a recycled part over a new part." says Autofinity COO, Dave Clarke.
"We believe it's important to educate people about the cars they drive, so that they can make informed decisions that keep their running costs down and do their bit for the environment."
