Pledge to #activecommute
01 September 2022
By Hayley Carmichael
In support of Travel Smarter September we’re asking you to make our #activecommute pledge…choosing more active travel helps to reduce local air pollution levels which benefits our health.
What is the pledge?
We call them dares, but these are easy pledges that you can make to reduce your impact on the environment, boost wellbeing in mind and body and maybe even save some money.
This September we want to tackle some of the causes of local air pollution so we can all breathe cleaner, healthier air.
Our #activecommute’ dare couldn’t be easier…
Simply pledge to walk, cycle or take public transport to/and/or from work at least once in your working week.
Active travel helps reduce local air pollution and is great for a healthier mind and body, plus you can save ££ on fuel and wear and tear on your vehicle which in these cost of living crisis times is a real win.
Air pollution and health and intrinsically linked, the Royal College of Physicians produced a great report called Every Breathe we take which highlights why we need to tackle this as healthcare providers.
How do I dare?
You can make your pledge right here.
Alternatively if your whole team want to make the pledge email everyone’s name to firstname.lastname@example.org and your pledges will be registered for you.
Together if we swap how travel for a less polluting alternative we can all add to cleaner, healthier air.
