Sure, a bus isn’t the most glamorous mode of transportation but what a public bus lacks in sexiness it definitely makes up in environmental oomph. A couple traveling by bus instead of car reduces their carbon emissions by half. Compared to an airplane, a bus uses 55 to 75 percent less energy. So reserve a seat on the Greyhound (and maybe bring some nose plugs and headphones, too).

Do it Today: This holiday season, shrink your environmental footprint by taking an eco-friendly bus instead of a plane, train, or automobile.
