Celebrate World Car-Free day every week!

World Car Free Day

If we care for the planet we can celebrate World Car-free day which is on 22ndSeptember by leaving our car at home for 24 hours! But we don’t have to wait for this date to do it.

We can dump our cars for a day, or even for a week, just to see how it feels! 

If all the UK’s car drivers switched to public transport, CO2 emissions from transport would be reduced by 90 per cent, says Joanna Yarrow in her book How To Reduce your Carbon Footprint!

What you can do is try out a different way to get to work. Choosing the bus for a 15 mile round trip to work each day could cut your carbon footprint by as much as 1.5 tonnes of CO2 per year!

Get a multi purpose travel card and enjoy it to save the planet!

Yarrow tells us that public transport generates 95 per cent less carbon monoxide and 50 per cent less carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide per passenger mile than private cars!

The glum truth is that drivers in America’s most congested cities spend more than 40 hours a year (an entire working week) sitting in stationary traffic!

celebrate world car free day any time you want to
