April 14 - Travel Light

skybox.jpgIn honor of this month’s Earth Day, (April 22), Yakima Racks (www.yakima.com) aim to provide eco-friendly solutions for traveling with a smaller carbon footprint.

With a weak dollar overseas and higher gas prices, many Americans will look at options that involve shorter trips closer to home in a car. Yakima, manufacturer of vehicle racks, has heard the rallying cry and is offering an eco-friendly solution with its line of 80% recycled cargo boxes. With Yakima’s SkyBox Pro Series, consumers can pack gear on top of the car, to put more bodies inside the car, reducing this summer’s road trip carbon footprint.

Yakima’s SkyBox Pro Series also boast a 50% stiffer lid than previous models, offer Super Latch Security for enhanced protection, and a new aerodynamic shape reducing drag and wind noise. In addition, all boxes have universal attachments that can automatically be loaded onto factory, round or square crossbars.

Sound good? Well, whether or not you’ve been concerned about the carbon footprint you’re leaving, you’ll appreciate a quality roof rack. And the racks they make at Yakima will be admired by you, your friends and Mother Nature as well.
