StriveGreen is a movement to incorporate small changes into our daily lifestyle. The idea of going green can be overwhelming, but little changes made one at a time make the process more manageable, and likely more permanent. Subaru may not be the first car company you think of in terms of eco-friendly vehicles, but you don't need to go electric to support a conscious vehicle manufacturer. So why do I drive a Subaru? First things first: because my mother has good taste. I inherited my first Subaru Impreza when I turned 16. For a reasonable price my mother sold me her '94 model in a pretty, and easy-to-spot aqua mist. I loved that car so much that after college I updated to an '08 Impreza hatchback in classic silver. After 140,000+ miles and over seven years I was ready to trade-in for a new vehicle, but this time I really wanted to think on my decision. Did I want yet another Impreza? Did I even want another Subaru? I thought about a Prius for the obvious gas savings and environmental consciousness of owning a hybrid electric car, but I just couldn't manage the ticket price. I'll be honest, my love for my first two Subarus had nothing to do with environmental impact, it was because I liked their aesthetic, they handled well, especially in the Pennsylvania snow, and they are reliable. Before this most recent purchase I wanted to do a little more research, and here is what I found out:
The photo is from a recent camping trip on Mustang Island along the Texas coast. She handles sand, snow, and everything else I've thrown at her, beautifully.
