More truck drivers observe eco-friendly practices

Today's professional truck drivers in the US are more environmentally conscious and more connected through technology than ever through, according to a new survey of Atlas Van Lines drivers. More than half of Atlas' drivers (53%) seek out recycling opportunities for aluminium, plastic and glass waste items they accumulate on their journeys. Furthermore, 38% take advantage of reusable drink containers and 33% use reusable grocery bags. Drivers also reported exercising other means of reducing their carbon footprint, including the use of toll road PrePasses, generators and biodiesel fuel. 66% of drivers surveyed use smartphones and more than three-quarters of drivers check their e-mail daily.  (ben)
