Cars are responsible for 19.7% of the global carbon Footprint. If we reduce driving by 50% around the world and assume one-third of car miles are replaced by public transportation and the rest by biking and walking, Earth Overshoot Day would move back 12 days!
How do you commute to work? Do you have a chance to mingle with the carpooling folks, or even the cyclists or public transit riders who meet on the road every day? Bring social back in your daily commute!
We are counting all the steps taken to #MoveTheDate. More steps mean more impact.
