07 Sep Eco-friendly Motorcoach
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: Motorcoaches are the best when it comes to being a green transportation leader. For starters, our coaches can have 57 passengers on board. When you ride an Eco-friendly motorcoach it does so much for our environment. Stop for a moment and imagine if each of those 57 passengers were driving their own individual car.
Right off the bat, what are the ramifications of that?
*57 additional cars, which leads to…
*More congested roadways and
*Increased air pollution due to the added exhaust.
One of the best ways to effectuate change is to make a problem glaringly obvious, something that everyone can see clearly. And one of the complications of transportation pollution is that, unless you’re living in a place with crazy population numbers or you’re dealing with inversion that traps all that nasty air in the wintertime, it’s kind of understandable how one can forget everything that’s being emitted into the air from individual cars, every day.
But hey, sometimes you get just a glimpse. Let’s list some alternate examples to serve as analogies for a minute.
Ever been stuck in a weather cycle of rain for days and days? At first, you might enjoy that warm fire and some bowls of tasty soup. But then, it starts to drag on and on. You know it’s gray and cool outside, but you end up just getting used to it. And then, one day, the sun decides to show her face again. And when you plant yourself out in the warm sunshine and find that you need your sunglasses because of how bright it is out there, you’re surprised by it.
And, as a last example, what about those tricky photographs? From a distance, they appear to be something beautiful, even captivating. But then. You zoom in, and it’s a collage of disturbing images that you’d never want to look at in a million years.
In the same way, we are sometimes incubated from the pollution we’re putting in the air each day as we drive vehicles. But hey, have a week or two of nasty cold temps in a valley surrounded by mountains in the wintertime, and the smog can’t hide. Suddenly, you’re super aware of all the junk that’s in the air, something you don’t see most of the time, and you don’t want those toxins in your lungs.
But, here’s the thing. Just like staring at that painting and not realizing what you’re actually looking at, or being in a toxic environment and it being normal (you can’t “see” the harm), air pollution is the same. Even when you can’t see it, it’s still happening, and it’s affecting the world we live in today and the generations that lie ahead. If you want to make an environmentally-friendly transportation choice, think about an eco-friendly motorcoach. Sure, it’s still a vehicle, and it’s emitting pollution, too. But… it is part of a conservation effort, condensing and reducing the number of cars on the road. It’s a lot better to have emissions from one vehicle than from 57, right? It’s a choice that all of us can support and feel good about, and we’d love to have you ride with us next time you have a group transportation need.
