By nature, we at offMetro start every day like it’s Earth Day. While we strive to make the right choices—taking the train or biking instead of driving, pulling out plugs not in use, refilling water bottles, eating locally-sourced food, or recycling—it’s still a challenge to remind ourselves why we’ve tweaked our lifestyle, why we go out of our way to lighten our carbon footprint just that little bit.
Today, we thank our readers in New York City, the Tri-State area, and you globetrotters from around the world who continue to support our mission by exploring places without a car. Happy Earth Day!
