Ride-Sharing could be a solution to an issue throughout the county for various reasons. Perhaps someone doesn’t have a car, can no longer drive, or wants to reduce their carbon footprint. Until now, there has not been a designated location for Ride Sharing in Grand County, but now WorkInGrand.com has provided a forum to discuss the issue. Residents of Grand County can exchange ideas regarding Ride Shares and form partnerships so this idea can gain momentum.
People, residing in the same vicinity and commuting to the same office district can begin ride shares and form carpools. Many Grand County residents liven one community, and work in another, along with their neighbors. Carpooling increases personal relationships and reduces the overall carbon footprint. When three people are commuting, that takes two cars off of the road.
The Climate Crisis is affecting the environment and lives globally. With heightened awareness of how this is happening through the bringing of fossil fuels, many people are choosing to look for alternative choices they can make in daily life. There are many ways people can reduce their fossil fuel use, such as creating energy-efficient homes, reducing consumption, and more. Driving less is one of the ways that is the easiest to reduce greenhouse gases. According to the University of Michigan, transportation consists of 27% of all greenhouse gases.
By walking, biking, and carpooling, we will build community through a healthy and environmentally friendly way. Sharing resources and serving our fellow neighbors deserve more attention and is our duty towards the society and environment. Let’s strive to make this earth a better place to live in.

Modern lifestyle and the importance of Energy Conservation
In the rat race of modern life, little thought is diverted towards energy conservation. Adequate attention is required by each and every one of the society towards not only energy conservation but towards avoiding the use of energy devices which lead to carbon emission and augment the ozone layer, the prime cause towards global warming.
A very meager step towards the avoidance of energy consumption and reducing the carbon footprint can go a long way by adopting Ride Shares and Car Pooling. People, residing in the same vicinity and commuting to the same office district can easily adopt rideshares and form carpools, to provide impetus to the movement of Energy Conservationists.
One can easily envisage the amount of energy saved when 3 people commuting from one locality travel on the same route in one car to the same 3 people traveling in 3 different cars. The exponential value of reduced carbon emissions can be credited to the participants of the scheme of Car Pooling or ride-sharing.
Leading academics, knowledgeable about environmental issues have already predicted that due to the Ozone Layer and Global Warming, the temperature on earth would be uninhabitable within the next couple of decades, and it is our responsibility to keep the earth’s habitable for our forebears and children.
Pride and dignity should stumble block and humility should be brought into play, to allow for these schemes into effect. The entire existence of the planet is at stake and a little effort from the community would go a long way to ensure that the environment on this planet remains inhabitable, and we leave a better place for our children.
Sharing of resources and serving the Society as a whole deserves more attention and is our duty towards the society and environment. Let’s strive to make this earth a better place to live in.
