Making sustainable choices about your transport and travel is good for you and the environment. Choosing sustainable travel can help you to:
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.
We now have the option of reducing the environmental impact of air travel, through things like carbon offsetting.
Petrol is a dwindling resource and car pollution is a major concern. These facts have driven the development of improved options.
Cycling is a sustainable form of transport, fuelled by natural, renewable resources – your legs.
Public transport is safer and less stressful than travelling by car, and produces far less pollution.
Taking a sustainable approach to your holiday plans can reduce your impact on the environment and help you get more out of the experience.
