Green Your Dad: The Car Dude

Plug-in car Dads tend to like things (cars, electronics, golf…) that aren’t always best for Mother Earth. Since Father’s Day is Sunday, this week’s tips suggest ways to help your dad be greener. Maybe you’ll get a gift idea or two too.

Tip #3: For the Motor Lover

Most guys we know have at least a minor love affair with automotive technology. If your dad does too, and especially if he tends to buy, lease, or test-drive the newest models when they’re released (and you can’t get him to buy used), get him amped on the newest eco-offerings from Tesla, Porsche, Toyota, and Volkswagen.

Tell us: How do you get the car fans in your life to go greener?
