Swapping one car journey a week for a sustainable transport choice can be fun and save you money
Changing your habits is tough. That’s why no one’s asking you to overhaul everything at once. Switching just one car journey for a sustainable alternative is a fun way to get started – you could even try out one of our ideas each week in a kind of pick-and-mix approach. If you need more inspiration, try this: you probably have a friend who’s trying to stop smoking (you might be trying yourself – in which case good luck). Borrow one of their tactics and swap one car journey a week, putting aside the money you would have used on petrol and parking. This can be performed with a little bit of mental accounting, or you could use a jar to see the coins and notes piling up. And at the end of the trial period, go ahead and buy yourself a treat. It’s a hassle-free change of habit.
