Getting active and reducing air pollution

The benefits of being active are well known. Choosing to swap a car journey for an active journey by walking, cycling or scooting, can help protect the planet and improve air quality.

Easy ways to get active!

  • Try walking short journeys – Take a walk to the corner shop for milk or bread. Reducing even just one journey a week will reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Walk to school – Everyday you can get your steps in by walking children to and from school. 
  • Get a bike to travel quickly – Biking to destinations makes your active journey a lot quicker.
  • Get a jog on – You can get your dose of daily exercise in by jogging to the shop and walking home.

Why active travel is good!

Active travel is good for your health and the environment. It reduces pollution and protects the planet.
