  • Cycle more
  • Use public transport more

Giving up a car isn’t always easy, and for some, having a car is essential. In which case you could:

  • Drive more efficiently – save fuel, save money, save the planet!
  • Choose cleaner fuel – LPG, hybrid and electric cars are here to stay!

And as for going on holiday, well you don’t HAVE to give up those short haul flights, but you might have a lot more fun doing things another way!
