If you do not have the time today to plant a tree, there are still plenty of things you can do to lessen your impact on the Earth and its natural resources. First and foremost is try to use less gasoline when you drive. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Be sure to check your vehicle’s manual or check the info on the inside of the driver’s side door panel. Underinflated tires can make your vehicle use way more energy (fuel) to do the same amount of work or travel at a given speed.

Avoid the urge to “gun it” or speed. Drivers who hammer the gas pedal are unsurprisingly going through far more fuel on average than those who maintain speed and accelerate in a moderate fashion.
