Green Driving America is committed to helping drivers make transportation choices in their lives that will benefit the planet and themselves. To achieve this goal, our primary emphasis is educating on clean transportation by showing the myriad benefits of low- to zero-emission vehicles. A secondary benefit is to improve driving behavior by showing an array of smart driving practices in internal combustion engine vehicles. And we provide an overview on alternatives to driving.
