Walking to School
The very simple act of walking to school or work every day can reduce our carbon emissions from cars by a significant amount. For those who live close to school, it highly advised to walk or bike to school. A one-mile distance is about a 20-minute walk.
According to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), The average car releases 404 grams of carbon dioxide for every mile (1.6 kilometers). When multiplied by the thousands of days in which we go to school and the billions of kids that go to school, it augments to a catastrophic amount of greenhouse gases entering our atmosphere. In conclusion, instead of releasing carbon dioxide in our air, we could be walking or biking to school.
How it saves money: Gasoline needed to drive to school is not bought.
