Driving to and from work, school, or social functions every day can become costly. Did you know that the average Canadian driver spends about $145 per month on gas?! That’s over $1,700 each year spent on fuel! And that’s not including the environmental costs.
Why not ease your wallet and the planet by swapping your mode of transportation to biking, running or walking? Doing this even just one day a week has been proven to make a significant impact on personal carbon emissions in cities.
In fact, the average person who commutes 10km to work 5 times a week can save nearly 19,000 lbs of CO2 emissions by swapping with this simple switch! That’s the equivalency to 40 planted trees! Calculate your own benefits and be sure to stop by your local Salvation Army Thrift Store for all your bicycling and running shoe needs.
