“Share a Ride, Tell a Story, Save a Park.” Our slogan at GreenXC sounds simple enough, but what began as an intriguing thought to promote eco-friendliness has exploded into a nationwide environmental campaign.
Last week, we set out on a three-week cross-country journey using only rideshares to raise awareness for the National Parks and Forests with the help of the USDA Forest Service. So far, the trip has been an amazing experience. We are both meeting many wonderful, like-minded people who care about our mission and encountering so many unforgettable, awe-inspiring aspects of nature.
Because GreenXC is a collaboration of young professionals, we initially started out by wanting to educate and encourage the future generation about the importance of practicing sustainability and protecting our parks and forests. While this foundational goal holds true, we have learned so much throughout this process and recognize many opportunities for improvement, such as the current ride-share tools at hand. We are working on creating a platform that makes ride-sharing more comfortable, safe and easy. We cannot wait to continue sharing our journey with our followers and to accomplish what we set out to do. To follow our journey and to read more about our campaign, visit http://www.greenxc.com!
