AskPatty’s Tips to #Green Your Car and Save Gas: Telecommute


Working from home just one day a week could lower your fuel costs by as much as 20%.

Working from home is easier than ever, thanks to the broad assortment of instant messaging, video chat, teleconferencing, and other world-flattening technologies. Avoiding the rush-hour trek to work and back just one day a week could extend your tank of gas by as much as 20%.

According to nearly 50% of today's jobs are suitable for telecommuting. More than 3.6 million Americans telecommuted in 2015, and of those, 82% of telecommuters surveyed said they've lowered their stress level since they started working remotely, while 80% said their morale was higher.

Go ahead: Ask your boss or allow your employees to work from home once a week. It's good for the environment!
