Our new Toyota Aygo

Our community car club, Co-wheels Birmingham, is expanding! We’d like to park our next car in the Kings Heath area…
…so we are looking for a good spot to park it.

What do you think? Where would you like to see a car(s)?

We need your help! Please fill in our SHORT online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6VRT9CH

As a thank you, we will enter everyone who completes the survey into a prize draw on 21 March. The prize is £10 Co-wheels driving credit.

New evidence that car fumes cause lung cancer and heart failure…

… but even a small reduction in air pollution will save thousands of lives every year.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/10169573/Low-levels-of-air-pollution-increase-lung-cancer-and-heart-failure-risk.html

MEANWHILE, new research from CarPlus (which supports car clubs and car-share schemes) shows that:

  • car club members take fewer journeys by car (and use healthier travel options instead)
  • car club cars tend to be in emissions Band A (lowest), whilst the nation’s fleet is on average in Band D.

So, join a car club, rethink your car use and drive with a Green conscience!

Green Revolutions starting up soon in Stirchley – we have our first car!

For when you want to transport your family, or your shopping, or for longer trips, Green Revolutions have a car for you! We welcome families, so you can move your children – and their stuff – without hassle or expense. We can even provide baby/child seats.
Our first car is a Volkswagen Passat Estate, “Katie”, with plenty of space inside and an efficient Start-Stop engine.
Katie will cost about £5 per hour (works out at 8.5p per minute). You will be able to book her in advance and you won’t have to go looking for her. You’ll be able to keep your car with you for the return journey! If it makes things easier, we can drop her off at your home.
Watch this space for details of how and when you can start driving with a Green conscience.  http://www.green-revolutions.org
