April is Blacklane’s environmental month!

It’s easy to say that we need to protect our environment, but not everyone knows how they can make a change. 22 April is Earth Day, which is why we’ve dedicated this month to the environment.

Blacklane is committed to making a change and we would like to help you join us! From eating locally sourced food and wearing fair fashion, to upgrading the cars we drive and investing in appliances made to last, there are many ways that we can positively impact our planet.

Earth Day’s focus this year is on ending plastic pollution. Using reusable instead of plastic bottles is a good first step, as is buying produce which is loose and not individually packaged. That’s only the main topic for 2018, though. Along with plastic pollution, there are many other ways we leave our footprint on the planet. Luckily, there are also many other steps that we can take to make a difference. Let’s take a look at a recent study done by Swedish researchers which looks into how we can personally help pull back on climate change:

Take the environment into consideration this April – and beyond!

Even with this knowledge, though, it’s not always easy to do what is necessary. At Blacklane, we know that travel is a part of business life. This makes it hard to, for instance, reduce the number of flights you take, or possibly even determine which cars you use on your travels. That’s why we have taken the initiative to help you reduce your impact in ways which are easier to incorporate into your lifestyle.

From travel tips, to what Blacklane is doing to help the environment, to what to look for when choosing an electric car, look out for posts on our social media channels that inspire you to take our planet into consideration at every point of your journey.

As they say (or at least until SpaceX changes the game): We have to take care of our planet – it’s the only one we’ve got!
