Professional athletes like Jeremy Guthrie of the Kansas City Royals pitcher, often drive noticeable cars. Guthrie drives a Toyota Prius. The hybrid is known as one of the cleanest and eco-friendly vehicles sold in the United States. According to this New York Times article some athletes are opting for the greener car albeit electronic or hybrid vehicles. Athletes may choose their ride because they want to be more environmentally conscious, or they might just like the quality of the car. Either way, athletes can impact consumer purchases and life choices and it would be interesting to others will follow their carbon-less footprint.
Knowledge is power. My goal this #EarthDay is to continue to do daily small things to benefit environment as well as continue to learn more.
