Getting Around

How you get around affects the climate

Moving people around accounts for almost 25 percent of our county’s carbon emissions. How we get around has a big climate impact, and it’s pretty simple to do your part!

Choose active forms of transportation – walking, biking or transit – to save money on gas and get your daily exercise while you’re at it.

Run errands locally (close to your home or work) so you can go by foot or bike (you don’t have to actually run!).
