The Environmental Cost Of Using Electric Scooters

2019-08-03 01:53:081 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Electric scooters are touted as environmentally-friendly, but they might be worse for climate change than other transportation. The e-scooters don’t emit carbon, which is why they’re often considered greener than other modes of transportation. But the scooters also typically tend to be made in China, says Digital Trends. Making and moving those scooters to the United States creates a massive carbon footprint. In the cities where they're operated, the scooters are also shuffled around using gasoline-powered cars.
