An Introduction

Just one car free day every week could save you over £120 a year on petrol bills and around 300Kg of CO2 emissions, as well as contributing to improved air quality and providing you with “free” exercise.

With travel accounting for around 40% of our emissions in the UK – excluding shipping and aviation – there’s enormous scope here to make a difference by changing the way we travel.
