Wednesday, June 5th is World Environment Day, a day of worldwide awareness and action for environmental protection. Celebrated in over 100 countries, this year’s theme is #BeatAirPollution and events around the world will focus on simple things everyone, everywhere can do to reduce air pollution resulting from agriculture, industry, waste, household activities, and transportation.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, pollutants from vehicles and engines negatively impact millions of Americans every day, particularly those who live in urban areas or near busy roads. Commercial trucks and busses as well as passenger cars, trucks, and motorcycles contribute ozone, particle pollution, and other toxins with serious health ramifications, including difficulty breathing, cardiovascular disease, non-fatal heart attacks, damage to the immune system, neurological disorders, reproductive disorders, even childhood leukemia and premature death.
One simple thing that you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and help make our air cleaner and safer for everyone is to reduce your auto emissions by reducing the number of miles you drive. One way you do this is, yep, you guess it, to ride a scooter!
Whether you choose an electric scooter or a kick scooter, the environmental benefits are clear. With zero emissions, your scooter does not release any gases into the environment, so you can feel good when you scoot your commute.
Plus, getting out of the car or off of the bus and onto a scooter has personal benefits, as well. Riding a kick scooter is a great cardio workout, strengthening your core muscles and working your balance and coordination skills. An electric scooter enables you to travel further, making it the perfect ride for the last mile of your commute, errands around town, and meet-ups with friends. And being outside in the fresh air and sunshine is definitely a mood booster.
This World Environment Day, make a commitment to reduce your auto emissions by riding a Razor scooter! Our Power Core E100 Electric Scooter is a great choice, offering up to 60 minutes of continuous ride time at speeds of up to 11 miles per hour. Totally maintenance free, riders just step on and twist the throttle to accelerate, and squeeze the hand-operated break to slow down. A retractable kickstand keeps the scooter upright while you take care of business. Available for as little as $135, the Power Core E100 is an affordable, fun way to do your part for the environment.
