Cars account for a whopping 13% of the UK’s CO emissions. That’s a massive contribution to global warming.
More and more school runs are done by car even though there are other (greener) ways. And it’s not just students either, teachers are just as bad. Transport is 17% of the carbon footprint of your average school or college. You could make a serious dent in this by getting staff and students out of cars and into the alternatives: cycling, walking and public transport. Not only are they much greener but they are healthier, cheaper, quicker (usually) and they give you more freedom.
