Motivations and Ideas

Try walking for that short journey and help reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and get some exercise too. Could you take your partner or family with you?

Environment Swapping those short journeys of less than a mile from the car to travel on foot will help the environment and reduce traffic levels

Physical health A walk to the shops instead of driving is a great way to get your activity into your daily routine. And carrying the shopping back will give you a strengthening benefit too!
