Letter writer: Stop pollution, save money, get exercise during Strive Not to Drive Week

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Strive Not to Drive is a fantastic opportunity to stop pollution, save money and get physical exercise.

One reason you should participate in Strive Not to Drive Week is you can save money on gas. The second reason is that when you are in a car, you’re not getting any physical exercise.

There are many other great ways of transportation like running, walking, biking and skateboarding.

The third reason is when you are taking a car, and many other people are driving a car, that is a bunch of fumes going into the air and polluting the Earth. That is why taking a city bus or carpooling is an awesome way to stop pollution.

I hope the people who read this letter will participate in Strive Not to Drive Week starting on May 15.
