Sunday’s Flowers advocate walking!

Sunday’s flowers have glum news about car travel!

  1. Half of all car journeys made are less than 2.5 km. (2 miles)
  2. 60 per cent of all car journeys have only one person in the car.
  3. Nearly 70 per cent of all flights within European airspace are less than 1000km (620 miles).
  4. An aeroplane creates three times more CO2 and pollution than a train on distances less than 500 km (300 miles).
  5. Globrally, aircraft generate more than 700 million tonnes of CO2 per year.
  6. A passenger taking a long-haul return flight from the UK to the US produces as much CO2 as a motorist does driving in the UK for a year!

We can do a little bit to reduce travelling by car, aeroplanes etc. Try walking or cycling: a brisk 20 minute walk and regular cycling will do wonders for us and help the planet!
