4. Garage

We used to have two cars but we sold one a couple of years ago because we wanted to use less fossil fuel. Mum takes the bus to work now. My sister walks to school with her friends. I like to cycle to school because it's the fastest way to get there and I've got some cool waterproof clothing so I don't get too wet when it rains.

Mum and Dad have thought about selling this car but Dad uses it to get to work and needs it to pick up building materials.

What else could you tell the Green family to do to save energy?
