- About Deakin
Travelling by car is a very convenient option for many people; one that is often taken for granted. Cars and motorcycles have a significant effect on our environment. Using oil and fuel resources, car use adds to greenhouse gas emissions, air and noise pollution. Oily run-off and particles from roads enter stormwater drains and get washed into waterways and oceans, contaminating waterways and smothering plants and animals. The manufacture and maintenance of motor vehicles also use non-renewable resources including metals, plastics, petroleum and other fossil fuels, causing a negative impact on the environment.
The sites below provide some great information about reducing the impact of your car on the environment.
