Zipcar’s Low Car Diet: GPB’s Julie Chosen!

Hey guys!

Exciting news… After I applied on a whim, I was picked to be 1 of 20 lucky participants in Zipcar’s Low Car Diet!  Starting tomorrow for 30-days, I’ll be virtually car-free!  As co-author of Green Philly Blog, I know we all have skeletons in our trying-to-be-green closet… and I haven’t been able to kick my dreaded driving habit while working in the suburbs (which lacks a solid transit system).  So I’m giving this a go, refraining from lunch outings and staying late on the weekdays.

Every day, I’ll be updating Julie’s Low Car Diet blog to share my stories, frustrations and laughter with you while traveling on the SEPTA line formally known as the R5 & public transit.

I look forward to keeping you updated!

Best,

Julie

  1. Being car-free in Center City is super easy and fun! I think there’s another car-share company also active in the area (PhillyCarShare or something like that :).

    I just spent a week visiting a friend that lives in Center City and runs a green business. He can easily afford to keep a car, but doesn’t, and gets around exactly like you will be this month! He showed me a great time, no problem!
