People in Greater Manchester make around 250 million car journeys of less than one kilometre each year, That’s a 15-minute walk or a five-minute bike ride. If we all walked or cycled these short journeys we’d help prevent at least 42,750 tonnes of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere – a saving that’s equivalent to planting 21 million new trees in one year.
