Cycling more, driving less.
I have taken up the challenge to drive my car less, and so far it has been a invigorating and challenging experience. I live far from work and university. So to walk or cycle that distance would take some time and stamina. I have been making big leaps in that direction though also, how I feel, my mood, and my sence of the world. I am a very visual person so to see all of that lush flowing greenery, and rivers appeals to me.
Here are some figures of what car petrol impacts on the environment:
- 1 litre petrol = 2.3 kilograms of carbon dioxide
- And noise pollution
Every little bit counts. I have not handy caped myself or made life more difficult I feel more happy to not have to be in traffic, I feel more healthy and my piece of mind is more positive. It is spring time here in Melbourne so why not enjoy a little bit more time outside.
