Since the onset of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the environmental impact across the globe has dwindled significantly. With most of us staying home to work, it has helped our Mother Earth to breathe again.
For many of us, this downtime turned out to be a good time for us to adopt alternative ways of doing things and reexamine our lifestyles. We start to address burning questions that were previously shoved to the back of our minds, like the impact our daily choices have on global emissions.
No need for grand gestures
By now, we would have been schooled to bring along reusable straws during our bubble tea runs and tote bags for trips to the supermarkets. Everyone can do their part no matter how minute. After all, it takes a drop to form an ocean.
Have you reconsidered changing up your usual mode of transportation to something else that leaves a lower carbon footprint? We get it, car ownership has become an essential means of transportation for many, with various uses for different family members and those working far from their area of residence. Would you consider the more environmentally-friendly option of owning an electric car instead of petrol-run vehicles? Do you rely heavily on taxis and private hires to get around? Instead of getting a Grab Car, have you tried Grab Hitch that utilises carpooling to save resources?
In this article, we share alternative green modes of transportation that emit no pollution at all. The Yahoo Shopping team has come up with our version of earth-friendly modes of transportation like using bicycles, skateboards, longboards, skate scooter and even rollerblades when out and about. Most of these options are handy enough to bring with you onto the trains and also for a good workout over the weekends.
Who knows, commuting via these unconventional transportation methods may become a norm in time to come. I dream of a society much like the Scandinavian countries, where dedicated lanes allow commuters to move about safely in eco-friendly ways. Best of all, by incorporating commute with exercise, we can look forward to healthier lifestyles as well.
There's no better time to get into this healthy habit than shopping for the best deals on Amazon Prime Day, happening on 21- 22 June.
Tim Riggins is still very hot, FYI. Believe it or not, it has been almost 10 years since we said goodbye to Friday Night Lights. While you hit the play button to relive all of FNL's best moments, you might also be wondering what some of our favorite stars have been up to since the show's end.
Last year, in the midst of protests stemming from the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many, many more black citizens at the hands of the police, Brother Vellies founder Aurora James had a strikingly simple idea: Support more Black-owned businesses. James's call to action—for Americans to devote 15% of their spending to Black-owned companies, proportionate to the approximately 15% of the population Black Americans make up—became the 15 Percent Pledge, a measurable commitment corporations could give to supporting Black business. A year later, after design brands including West Elm and Crate & Barrel have signed onto the 15% commitment, the reason behind the pledge remain as relevant as ever: While the impacts of COVID-19 made for a rough year for many small businesses, data shows that Black-owned businesses were hit especially hard. That means there's never been a better time to support Black business owners—especially since August marks Black Business Month.
Bradley Cooper began acting professionally in the ‘00s, but it wasn’t until starring in “The Hangover” that he skyrocketed to fame. From “Wedding Crashers” to “A Star Is Born,” here’s what you should know about his incredible career.
This review of “Pray Away” was first published on June 16, 2021 after its premiere at the Tribeca Festival. John Paulk and his wife Anne appeared on the cover of Newsweek magazine in 1998 as the face of Christian ex-gay therapy. In “Pray Away,” a wide-ranging documentary from director Kristine Stolakis, Paulk is interviewed today, and he is unrecognizable as the man on that cover. Even though he was much younger when he posed with his wife, the contemporary Paulk looks so relaxed and comfortable
