Day Six: Turned Off Car Instead of Idling

Heading back home from my weekend trip with my Grandmother and stopped off at a rest stop. I waited in the car for my Grandmother while she handled her business. Instead of letting the car idle, I turned it off.

For every two minutes a car is idling, it uses about the same amount of fuel it takes to go about one mile. Courtesy of The Consumer Energy Center.

What was your simple green act for the day?
