I’m a frequent Zipcar user and still don’t own my own personal car (I haven’t owned one since my 1996 Dodge Avenger). Zipping around in their fleet of cars has been a lot of fun, and you get to try out a variety of cars, including quite a few hybrid vehicles. Zipcar let it’s Zipsters know that they reduced gas consumption by about 15 million gallons and CO2 emissions by 1.5 billion pounds last year alone. That is definitely nothing short of remarkable!
Some of the environmental and/or sustainable benefits can be seen in this Zipcar infographic. Also, if you’re thinking of signing up for Zipcar (and maybe even getting rid of your car, especially if you live in a city), use my signup referral link for a $25 driving credit.
