Since it’s Friday afternoon, we here at the Clog know there’s only one thing on your mind: How can I use Facebook to reduce my carbon footprint? Well, we’ve got the answer.
A new application developed in part by students in UC Berkeley’s Energy and Resources Group and Zimride can help. Called Carpool, the application connects you with other people taking car trips so you can–you guessed it–carpool there. All you have to do is input where and when you are driving, and you’ll be connected with other people going the same way. It works the other way around, too, so if you need a ride, you can find people driving there. It saves gas money and it saves the planet. And the more people who use it, the better it works.
