Work From Home
Technology, these days, makes working from home, in many cases, more effective and efficient then commuting to the workplace. Online video conferencing, instant messaging, real time presentations, smart phones, and other ingenious IT inventions can literally bring your working environment to your doorstep with the click of a mouse. Time normally spent on the road can now be used for other more pressing things like cooking a big brain stimulating breakfast or getting that extra hour of very needed sleep. Millions of Americans are already taking advantage of this newly found reality, so why not look into it for yourself? Call friends that work from home for advice. Google search your occupation with different ‘how to work from home’ word combinations. The surrounding air will greatly appreciate your reduced driving time and so will you!
Close To Home
If operating out of your home is a ‘no can do’, the next best thing for air quality and climate change is to find a job close to home. Because tailpipe emissions are directly proportional to the time spent driving, the closer the job, the cleaner the air. When applying for jobs make sure to apply for the nearest ones first. If you get a job at a large firm, retail store, ect. that has many office or store locations, ask to be assigned to the one closest to your home.
