Recently I've been thinking a lot about how I can make changes to my lifestyle to lead a more sustainable life; Now I'm not talking about living without luxuries but rather being more aware of my resource consumption and reducing unnecessary waste.
* Recycling more
* Eating locally
* Turning off appliances and lights
* Hanging clothes to dry rather than using the tumble-dryer
One area I've really looked into focusing on is electric mobility.
Electric cars are growing in popularity. No wonder: they're quiet, cheap to run and smooth to drive. Electric cars are becoming more mainstream by the day and this trend is only going to accelerate as rules are introduced to limit the kind of vehicles allowed into major cities. To make this even easier, you have in Europe alone over 50,000 NewMotion ChargePoint.
One of the main things holding these cars back remains range anxiety – the fear that you won't have enough juice to get to where you’re going. This is because electric cars can typically cover only about 150 miles between charges and takes much longer to charge than it does to fill a petrol tank. However, this is slowly becoming less of an issue, with the help of https://newmotion.com/en_GB
There are already luxury electric cars that can cover more than twice that average distance on a single charge. And even if you can't stretch to one of those, an electric car can still make sense because they're cheap to run and are ideal for short journeys, such as the school run, trips to the shops or a brief commute.
I am already looking into to making the switch to an electric car. With the eagerly awaited release of the new Tesla 3, now seems a great time to do so. I think its so important to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet in any way we can. Whats your thoughts?
