BORN TO WALK
Foot instead of car = 16 trees
Walking is natural , is healthy , and is also very good for the planet.
Walking instead of driving for 2km a day prevents 160Kg of CO2 per year. Equivalent to planting 16 trees.
Walking regularly protects from obesity and cardiovascular disease.
Many studies have shown that if you walk at least 30 minutes (about 2km) per day with good pace (without running …) you can dramatically reduce the risks of diseases. Get used to walk instead of taking the car is definitely good for us and the environment, and probably also to our pockets.
For longer distances you can use the bike or integrate with public transport. Instead of going by car for 6km, you can walk for 1km and then get public transport for 5km. You can also equip scooters that speed up the walk and are comfortable to bring on public transport. They must be of adequate size and with large wheels to be fast also on not perfectly smooth surfaces.
When you really have to take the car, you should avoid go around to find parking in front of the target, maybe doing laps and laps, or, even worse, leaving the car illegally parked. Take a few steps on foot is good, avoids fines and often also saves time.
Walking regularly you can reduce easily (like walking …) your ecological footprint, your weight, and gain much in health. To motivate yourself to walk, you can use pedometers or the fitness tracker, where you can see the steps you made in a day and the connected calories consumption. You’ll find out that you don’t need the gym for keep fit.
