Since the onset of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the environmental impact across the globe has dwindled significantly. With most of us staying home to work, it has helped our Mother Earth to breathe again.
For many of us, this downtime turned out to be a good time for us to adopt alternative ways of doing things and reexamine our lifestyles. We start to address burning questions that were previously shoved to the back of our minds, like the impact our daily choices have on global emissions.

In this article, we share alternative green modes of transportation that emit no pollution at all. The Yahoo Shopping team has come up with our version of earth-friendly modes of transportation like using bicycles, skateboards, longboards, skate scooter and even rollerblades when out and about. Most of these options are handy enough to bring with you onto the trains and also for a good workout over the weekends.

Best of all, by incorporating commute with exercise, we can look forward to healthier lifestyles as well.
There's no better time to get into this healthy habit than shopping for the best deals on Amazon Prime Day, happening on 21- 22 June.

Once again, Kaulitz has snapped some seriously steamy pics of his supermodel love in a skimpy purple string bikini, […]
