Carless and curious about this car-sharing  thing? If you haven’t tried car-share  yet, autumn is a great time to get started with a free year’s subscription to Zipcar. Think of all of those fall weekend trips you can take!
Transportation emissions account for 27 percent  of the United States’ total greenhouse gas emissions – and it takes a tremendous amount of energy and materials to construct a car in the first place. However, the unfortunate fact of life is that many of us rely upon cars to transport goods and take us where we need to go on a regular basis. Fortunately, car sharing  services like Zipcar  offer a way to quickly and easily rent cars where and when you need them without the expense and environmental footprint of purchasing a vehicle – and without having to schlep to an airport or try to track down a car rental company. Zipcar  even offers hybrid and electric vehicles in many locations. To help cut down on the number of cars on the road we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve teamed up with Ford  and Zipcar  to offer Inhabitat readers the opportunity to win a one year Zipcar membership worth $85! It’s easy to enter – all you have to do is sign up for our newsletter , like us on Facebook , and leave a comment below sharing your best green transportation tip to lower the carbon footprint of your commute!
