Usually, when you go on a road trip, you will check your car is in good condition, look take out a young alfred insurance policy, and hit the road in your own car. But, this isn’t the only option for people anymore.
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.
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?
