Daily tips for doing good and living well from Sierra magazine


For many people, a garage or storage shed is a magnet for clutter: Boxes of old clothes, forgotten toys, and half-empty buckets of toxic goo all converge into a junk pile that would make any mother, especially Mother Nature, shudder. This week's tips feature easy ways to green your garage.

Tip #3 : Dig out the bicycle.

There may or may not be a car in your garage, but there's probably a bicycle buried in there somewhere. Now that winter is long gone, find your bike and repurpose an old handlebar to keep things organized.

As if bicycling wasn't already fun enough, CLIF BAR created a game called the 2 Mile Challenge where riders register online and compare their logged miles and avoided car trips with others. Think you could ride to the top? Either way you'll be sure to feel better about your commute and your carbon footprint.

Take our quiz to learn more about greening your bike ride.
