You have either purchased or thinking of buying a Varla Eagle One electric scooter because of its convenience, or you simply want to ride for fun. We understand! Electric scooters are the ultimate choice in portability and accessibility.


It is important to ask ourselves what the most significant cause of global warming is? If we look at the data, we will discover that transportation is one of the biggest contributors. Our carbon footprint starts the moment we turn on a car or take the subway.


Did you know that electric scooters will cut commute costs and it's good for the environment? Yes! This mode of transportation has a substantial positive impact on the environment. As carbon emissions get expelled into the atmosphere at alarming rates, the environment depends on new transportation developments to lessen our carbon footprint.


That's where electric scooters step in! Electric scooters have become a contender for city commuters who want a solution for fast city travel. You can zip around town on your electric scooter and never miss an early morning meeting again because of sitting in traffic.


Let's explore the ways that you can lessen your carbon footprint by riding an electric scooter!


The Effects of Carbon Emissions


We know that by burning fossil fuels, carbon dioxide gets released into the atmosphere. These carbon emissions contribute to 80% of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming.


The effects of carbon emissions:


  • Global warming: Carbon emissions lead to gas getting trapped in the earth's atmosphere leading to an increase in atmospheric temperature.
  • Environmental implications: The increase in atmospheric temperature leads to rising seawater levels, melting snowcaps, droughts, and other severe weather changes.
  • Human healthand productivity: Respiratory illnesses have increased from air pollution and smog, high mortality rates in high pollution areas, and increased heart disease risk.

What are the Stats?


According to the EPA (Environmental protection agency), 28% of greenhouse gases are caused by transportation in the United States. The automotive industry is investing in electric vehicles' development so they keep up with the market trends. While this is amazing for the environment, it is not happening quickly enough to replace fuel-consuming vehicles.


Oliver Bruce states that it consumes less energy to transport a person that weighs 220 lbs on a 45 lbs scooter than it does a 4,000 lbs vehicle going the same distance. For traveling short distances, electric scooters are eco-friendly ways to travel.


In 2018, more than 38.5 million trips had gotten taken on shared scooters in over 100 cities. According to the National Association of City Transportation (NACTO), shared electric scooters accounted for more than half the shared micro-mobility options, including dockless bikes and station-based bikes. More and more people are enjoying the electric scooter movement.


Are Electric Scooters Green?


Electric scooters offer their users an affordable, convenient, and accessible means of getting around the city. Since you generate no exhaust fumes because an electrical motor powers it, you create no pollution. Not only will you save money on commute costs, but you will get to reduce your carbon footprint by emitting no carbon emissions as you travel.


How your electric scooter is eco-friendly:


  • Transportation method replacement: If you usually take the bus or train to get to work, school, or just to hang out, an electric scooter can get you there.
  • No noise pollution: Noice pollution has become a problem in big cities over the years. Riding your e-scooter reduces the nuisance of noise pollution.
  • Air pollution smell: Your electric scooter isn't producing any bad smells. A foul odor is an indication of potential health risks.
  • The life of the electric scooter: Electric scooters are long-lasting and durable. The longer it is on the road, the less emissions you are using from a vehicle or public transportation.
