TRAIN IS AHEAD, SINCE CENTURIES
Train instead of car once a month = 49 trees
Moving on weekends for hundreds of kilometers has significant impact on the climate, do it by train allows you to reduce it significantly. Traveling by train instead of by car for 300km once a month avoids CO2 emission of half a ton of CO2 per year. Equivalent to planting 49 trees.
The train is No. 1 for safety and relaxation.
If you cannot resist the call of the sea or the mountain over the weekend, or you just work in a different city than your family, to move can be necessary. Similarly, also for work, to move, even for long distances, can be crucial. Whatever the cause of your movement, the way you move is critical for our planet. And the more we move, the more it is important to adopt a means of transportation with a lower environmental impact. Among the movements in medium-long distance the train is definitely the lowest one. .
The train is one of the oldest means of transport but it has been able to renew itself. Just think of the Wild West and its steam trains and compare them with existing high-speed trains. While for cars we’re still wondering if it will be possible to switch to electric drive extensively, the trains uses electricity since decades…
But the train has also many other advantages: first of all is the safest means of transport, but not only… Great advantages of train are that you can do other activities, such as reading, computer work, watching movies, meeting people, seeing calm landscape, or simply sleep. And on a train you can move and stretch your legs… And with new high-speed trains you can also be faster… And maybe save money… Definitely very convenient when traveling alone, but also in the family might be. There are in fact many discounts for families, or for accompanied children. Not to mention the various cards for students or pensioners.
