Did you know there are 38 million empty car seats on UK roads every day?

Save money and the environment

National Liftshare have the credit crunch in mind with the theme for this year’s celebration by asking you “How much could you save?”

On Little Green Blog, we love finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint AND save money; Liftshare seems like the perfect way!

Parents can set up a carshare for the school run and employees can share a lift to work. Carsharing is sociable, reduces stress and reduces your running costs.

Just think, if you carshare for just one day out of five, you’ll save 20% in running costs. It’s an easy step to take that has a wide-ranging positive impact on the environment.

To get involved, all you have to do is register with Liftshare and search for people who are travelling or want to travel the same  way as you! It’s free to register.

What about you – Do you liftshare or have any other great resources for people wanting to reduce their carbon emissions?

    Totally agree with this! Car-sharing is brilliant and like the guys in your photo it has saved me hundreds (literally) of pounds as well as cutting my CO2 footprint massively as I share with 3 others that I found on Really sociable too – we’ve all become great friends and my car-sharers all came to my wedding!
