The Covid-19 pandemic has brought good news and bad news when it comes to reducing polluting auto emissions.
The good news: fewer people are commuting, and that means they’re driving less.
The bad news: fewer people want to risk public transportation, and they are driving more.
More of those folks are looking for cheap second-hand cars, and used car sales are up.
In other good news, the Biden administration is looking to create jobs manufacturing zero-emissions vehicles, and General Motors has recently announced that it will move to producing all electric vehicles by 2035.
In the meantime, maybe you have one of those gas guzzlers parked in your driveway. It might not be as fancy as the 1973 Lincoln Continental pictured above, and I certainly hope it’s not as greedy — that monster got a pathetic 7 miles per gallon.
Here’s my plea: don’t sell it for the tiny amount you’d get on Craigslist. Donate it to us. We’ll make it SO easy. One phone call and you can relax: we’ll take care of picking it up (even if it needs to be towed), doing the paperwork, and getting the proper documentation to you so you can get a tax write-off.
You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing you’re contributing to our mission to restore the gifts of sight and hearing for people in your community who can’t afford the help they need.
Now there’s some good news. Just click here.
