In The Garage

Car Idling
Always keep the door open on the garage when running the car and limit the time the car is running. An idling car gives off 20x more pollution than a traveling car at 32 miles an hour.

Car Wash
If you wash your car at a car wash it is better for the environment. The car washes use less water per wash and they often recycle water. This also keeps soapy water out of our lakes and streams.

Garage Refrigerators and Freezers
If you reduce the time your garage door is up it reduces the energy your appliances use!


  1. These are great tips!

  2. I knew about the car idling and more pollution, but I did not know aobut the greenness of automated car washes.
