Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Car Travel Calculated

Transportation accounts for the largest portion of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Light-duty vehicles, (our everyday cars and trucks) make up 59 percent of overall vehicle emissions in the United States. As Colorado’s population continues to rise, air-pollution will also increase in the state, exaggerating already high levels of toxins in the atmosphere created by our vehicle activities.

Whether you balance your daily commute or a special trip, your donation will be used to help a family increase the energy-efficiency of their home. They will live more safely and comfortably while we all benefit from less greenhouse gas emissions.
