We all know that complete sustainability is hard to achieve, but Plan A is there to make it easier for you. Say hello to a conscious lifestyle, under your tree of life.
Tip #1. Cycling to work
Our data analyst, Ben Trollope, suggests that you use your bike to go to work. In fact, cycling is an emission-free transportation mode, which emits only 21 grams of CO2 per kilometre, ten times less than a car. Not convinced yet? A 2015 study made by the Institute for Transportation and development policy claimed that an increase in cycling worldwide of 20%, would cut carbon emissions by 11% in 2050.
While biking reduces CO2 emissions, it is an enjoyable form of exercise for this summer (e.g. you can burn 450 to 750 calories per hour of cycling). Jumping on your bike is an aerobic activity that promotes physical and mental health. From increased cardiovascular fitness, improved joint mobility to reduced stress levels and anxiety, depression management. Now, you can cancel your gym membership, save money and become sustainable. Who knows, maybe you will be ready for the Tour de France next year.
