Walking is a great way to get exercise that is convenient, easy and cost free.
Even 30 minutes exercise a day can help you on your way to becoming healthier and feeling great. You’ll never be late to work because you’re stuck in traffic or couldn’t find a car park.
Short distance car trips generate the most pollution per km travelled. Avoiding the short trips by walking is a great way to help the environment.

Before you get walking here’s a few things we’d like you to think about:
- Stay tuned to the environment
If you’re using a device while walking, keep one ear open to the environment, and an eye on what’s happening around you.
- Check before crossing the road
Even if you’re on a crossing look around before you step out onto the road.
- Be visible especially at night
It can be harder for motorists to see you in the dark. Consider choosing clothing with a light or bright features or something reflective.
