World Environment Day 2021 | If you believe electric vehicles are the answer to a greener future, we’re fielding five electric scooters to help you start your green revolution.
This is the day when you can make “green” promises, because today is World Environment Day. For example, never use a plastic straw, never throw a cigarette butt on the floor, go vegan or give up deodorant sprays maybe? Or some would argue that moving away from fossil fuels could be more beneficial for the environment. Electric vehicles are the answer then? Well, 70 percent of the country’s electricity comes from coal, but we’re not talking about that here. If you think EVs are the answer, we’ve lined up five ways to get back on evil fossil fuel-based technology.
