Helps Drivers Play Green

July 17, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
As gas prices continue to rise and environmental concerns to deepen, is expanding its article base to include material on living and playing "green." By focusing on environmentally friendly driving and recreation, the site augments its existing coverage of the latest hybrid and fuel efficient technology.

Since its inception in 2003 out of San Jose, California has worked to give readers the best information available on comprehensive and cheap car insurance coverage while also addressing issues of key concern to drivers. High gas prices and increasing environmental concerns have led the site's team of researchers to add increased coverage on hybrid and fuel efficient technology as well as a new section on vacationing "green."

"A lot of people have the idea that if you live green you stay home, compost your organic kitchen waste, and don't go anywhere for fun you can't reach on your bicycle," said CheapAutosInsurance CEO Brian Severson. "We're not against any of that and actively support green technology and living, but we also want to help people find ways to conserve fuel and preserve the environment without crawling in a hole to do it."

A new section on the CheapAutosInsurance site offers drivers ideas for taking a green vacation including the one-tank vacation. The idea is to creatively find recreational activities or sites of interest that will burn no more than one tank of gas during a round trip. Another option is the "staycation," with the idea that you are at home, but living there as if you were away — eating out, reading books and not getting the chores done.

"In this new era of fuel and environmental handicaps to personal transportation, people have to learn to get resourceful again," said Severson. "Personally, I like the idea of camping at nearby wilderness areas or state parks. It gives the kids a lot of great memories and let's us guys have an excuse not to shave."

Other green tips while traveling include recycling on vacation by gathering up all the plastics used and taking them home to the recycle bin and shopping locally at your vacation site for produce grown in the area. "It really doesn't matter where you are," said Severson, "you can find a way to do the responsible thing, even if it's just turn the lights off and turn the air conditioner up a couple of notches. A green lifestyle has to be portable, but portable doesn't mean repressive."
