When’s the last time that you sat down and thought about greener living? Do you know that on any given day, you can literally be doing something to help reduce your footprint on Earth?
It’s a powerful thought, right? The more that we can wake up now and make a difference, the better world we’re leaving for our children and our grandchildren.
Talk about a great reason to do better! And while it’s great news to know that we can make a difference daily, the even better news is that it’s really not all that difficult to do.
Here are some simple ways that you can apply a greener living mentality to your lifestyle with ease.
Greener Living: Making A Difference Each and Every Day
Living greener is not only a way of life, but it’s a way of thinking of each day, too. You have the ability to make awesome changes in your life to start a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
- Reduce your waste
How much trash are you throwing out into the world? Is there a way that you can start to compost or find a way to recycle more of your products?
This is a simple way that you can start living greener today, with not much effort on your part. The less trash and waste that you have daily, the less trash and waste that you’re putting out into the world.
- Reuse what you have
instead of just getting rid of something because you think that you might be “done” with it, stop and think about ways that you might be able to use it elsewhere.
Upcycling and recycling items in your home is a great way to get more use out of it, save it from going into a landfill, and also saving you some money, too.
- Choose a transportation method that promotes a green lifestyle
I don’t know about you but I spend a TON of time on the road. So much so, that it’s probably pretty fair to say that I’m literally traveling half the time.
What I’ve found out is that having a method of transportation that is good for the environment is not only important, it’s crucial.
This is why on my latest road trip while visiting my daughter in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan, I was so happy to test drive the NEW 2021 TOYOTA VENZA Hybrid for a few days! I was surprised by the elegance and stylish of this vehicle!
I now understand why an “elevated driving experience comes standard in the All-New 2021 Toyota Venza!”
Did you know that the Toyota Venza is 100% Hybrid? That means that it burns less pollution into the air AND gets great gas mileage wherever we go.
Toyota Audio on the Big Screen
Toyota cars have always been on our radar and we are so happy to see how they continuously up their game! The 2021 Toyota Venza Hybrid offers cutting edge entertainment and connectivity through intuitive and versatile Toyota audio systems. Audio Plus is standard on LE and XLE and includes an 8-inch touchscreen.
Premium Audio with Dynamic Navigation and JBL is optional on XLE and standard on Limited and features a stunning 12.3-inch touchscreen display with controls that can be switched between the driver or front passenger operation.
I loved the fact that I was “going green” by driving the Venza but also had so much room as well. I can’t believe a car of this size leaves such a tiny carbon footprint on Earth.
All Venza grades come with SiriusXM All-Access 3-month trial Satellite Radio and HD Radio along with Toyota Remote Services trial subscriptions.
The standard 6-speaker audio with a 4-channel amplifier provides a clean, powerful sound for all types of music.
And if owning a Toyota Venza for the living green aspect isn’t enough, there are so many other things about the Venza that are top-notch, too.
Some of my favorite safety features are:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Lane Tracing Assist
- Automatic High Beams
And just in case great gas mileage and awesome safety features aren’t enough, the Venza offers some pretty amazing standard features too such as a sleek and modern look, power liftgate, and multiple USB charge ports, too.
Don’t overlook the backup camera, the comfy seats, the premium audio, and the rain-sensing windshield wipers. (and my personal favorite? The heated leather-trimmed steering wheel!)
With gas mileage of 40 MPG on the highway and a starting price point of $39,800, this is a great way to a green lifestyle and still have comfort and class.
Star Gaze Panoramic Sunroof
I was sold on the Star Gaze Panoramic sunroof! Most of the cars that I’ve owned have had a sunroof. THAT is a requirement for me.
It turns from opaque to clear at the touch of a switch.. what da what???? It’s more than a conventional sunroof. With a simple touch of a button, you can switch from the transparent look to a frosted mode! What an amazing milky view of the sky.
With just the touch of a button, Star Gaze technology will allow you to switch from transparent to frosted modes. Frosted mode brightens the interior while reducing direct sunlight, giving the cabin an even more open, airy, and inviting feeling.
Now that you know there are so many ways that you can live a greener lifestyle, it’s time for you to make a choice. Make certain to add the Toyota Venza to your radar when you’re looking to upgrade your current vehicle.
The choice is clear that this hybrid vehicle is the perfect way to transition into a greener lifestyle.
