Is shopping worse for the environment than driving a car?

    It depends on how you shop and what you buy.
    For instance, if you tend to buy items locally produced from a store near your house, less gas is used than if you drive to the store and buy items produced in a different country, e.g. buying produce from Chile (assuming you don’t live there) vs. buying produce at a farmer’s market.

    From another perspective: it depends on what kind of car you drive. If you’re driving a Prius, you’d use less gas getting to the store than if you were driving a Hummer.

    Hope that helps!
