• A Sound Idea

    Sometimes it just takes a little incentive to do the right thing.  This fun experiment sponsored by Volkswagen in illustrates how a little sound effect can go a long way.  And have a positive effect on the environment!

    I’m thinking of sounds that might get me to change my behavior.  A police siren every time I top 70 mph might be a good deterrent.  Or a laugh track when I open the refrigerator door for a midnight snack!  If you’ve got any ideas, be sure to share them with us all!
