Making sustainable choices about your transport and travel is good for you and the environment. Choosing sustainable travel can help you to:
- save time and money
- meet people
- easily incorporate exercise into your day
- embrace new experiences.
Strictly speaking, sustainable transport refers to forms of transportation that rely on renewable or regenerated energy rather than finite natural resources. This doesn't mean that you must walk or cycle everywhere, or that you can never go on holiday. Instead, sustainable transport and travel is about considering your most sustainable option wherever possible, and making an effort to reduce the impact of your transport and travel 'footprint'. Rather than making life difficult or complicated, this approach will simplify your day and enrich your experience.
