Turo is a new car-sharing company that allows people to rent out their cars to others, or rent a car from someone else. Why is this form of car-sharing a good idea?
There are some great environmental benefits to car sharing, including:
Taking Cars off the Road: Renting your car out through Turo actually takes 14 cars off the road. That means less traffic, and less pollution. If you’re planning a trip and want your car to be at your destination, meaning you can avoid all the traffic, you may want to consider services like those of Cars Relo who can transport your vehicle across the country.
Leading By Example: Car sharing is just one of the many things you can share to reduce your carbon footprint. Whether you’re borrowing something from a friend or using a car through Turo, you’re setting an example that sharing is caring for the environment.
Fewer Cars Means Less Manufacturing: When you share a car through Turo, you’re reducing the impact of manufacturing more and more new cars, which uses a vast number of resources and causes a lot of pollution.
Turo asked me to share my favourite road trip songs to encourage road tripping with shared cars! So here’s my list for today’s Five on Friday:
1 – “no reason to cry out your eyes (on the highway)” by Hawksley Workman
I love Hawksley Workman so much, that really, I could listen to anything by him, all day long. But this song is really and truly perfect for listening to in the car, with its driving groove.
2 – “You and I Both” by Jason Mraz
Jason Mraz has one of the smoothest voices out there, and my daughter loves listening to him as much as I do. This is the perfect song to belt out when driving.
3 – “Always Be” by Jimmy Eat World
Jimmy Eat World has the perfect amount of spunk and rock. Love this song!
4 – “Uprising” by Muse
This was my redemption song when going through some tough times, and I listened to it multiple times on my last road trip. Now it must be a staple.
5 – “Your Love is a Song” by Switchfoot
Switchfoot is my ultimate favourite band, and this song usually makes me tear up a little bit. Car trips can be boring, but not when you’re listening to an awesome song like this one.
What are your favourite road trip songs?
