LIFE’S A JOURNEY – SHARE IT!
If you really want to beam into to bluedot by car, why not consider car sharing this year?
With the average 100 mile car journey leading to over 20 kg of CO2 being produced, goCarShare has the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably. It’s a great way to save money if you are driving and, as it is built around Facebook, you can see if your friends are going, find like-minded people to travel with, and check people out before agreeing to share. By travelling in a full car, festival-goers carbon emissions become comparable to taking the train, so it can make a real difference. (Source: DEFRA Report)
