Make Your Glovebox Clean, Green

No matter where you are you can take your green habits with you, even if you are on the go. With a little planning, you can turn your glovebox into a handy eco-friendly storage bin for your green tools, so you'll have them right at hand when you are out and about.

Instead of having to choose paper or plastic at the grocery store, keep a reuseable shopping bag in your car for those stops at the market. It folds nicely and can be tucked away ready to use. By keeping one of these in your glove box, it will help keep plastics and paper bags out of our landfills.

Another green tool to have on hand is an off-grid flashlight. That's a flashlight that is powered by its own juice. It's what's called a green beam; some are solar-powered and others are hand-cranked. Commute times can be long and that morning coffee or water can be a real lifesaver. So throw a reusable aluminum water bottle into your green glove box.

And here's a clever way to check your tire pressure: these valve stems have LED lights on them that blink when your tires are getting low. Pretty cool huh. And just take a moment to stock your car with these green items that way, you'll never be caught without them. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
