The importance of Green mobility

On the occasion of the World Car Free Day, which will take place this Friday, September 22nd, in
we want to highlight this important date to raise awareness about the importance of seeking sustainable transport alternatives and reduce the use of internal combustion engine vehicles.

Precisely, we want to take advantage of the celebration of this day to talk about Green mobility and its importance both in the conservation of the environment and our health and well-being.

Reasons to bet on Green mobility

Green mobility refers to the use of means of transportation that are environmentally friendly and contribute to sustainability. In a world increasingly concerned about climate change and air quality, it is essential to look for options that minimize our ecological footprint and promote a more sustainable lifestyle.

One of the reasons for opting for Green mobility is because we contribute to the reduction of emissions. Internal combustion engine vehicles are one of the main sources of polluting emissions and greenhouse gases. A more planet-friendly alternative is to travel by bicycle, walking or using public transportation. This gesture will significantly reduce carbon emissions and improve the quality of the air we breathe.

Green mobility promotes an active and healthy lifestyle. Walking or cycling are physical activities that not only help reduce pollution, but also improve our cardiovascular health, strengthen muscles and reduce stress.

Another benefit is sustainable urban development. Fewer cars on the road means less traffic congestion, less need for expensive road infrastructure and more space for green and pedestrian areas.

Finally, it should be noted that the use of sustainable means of transportation helps us save money. The cost of maintaining a car (including fuel, maintenance, taxes…) can be significant. On the other hand, by using public transportation or bicycles, we can reduce our daily expenses.

How to adopt Green mobility in our life?

  • Use public transportation. It is an excellent alternative to the automobile as it reduces traffic congestion and emissions. In addition, it is very convenient to travel by public transportation. You can read a book, sleep… Forget about parking problems.
  • Electric cars. Unlike the traditional vehicle, the electric car does not produce polluting emissions or CO2. It has a lower impact on the environment. It requires less maintenance and emits hardly any sound.
  • Walking or cycling. If the distances allow it, you can move around either on foot or by bicycle. It is a healthy and environmentally friendly way to get around. It is also an excellent way to connect with our environment and enjoy the outdoors. For example, take advantage of the weekends to go for a walk to buy bread.
  • Ridesharing: If we need to use the car, we can consider carpooling with co-workers, friends or neighbors who have a similar route. This reduces the number of vehicles on the road and promotes resource efficiency.

Every little change counts! Adopting Green mobility not only benefits the environment, but also improves our quality of life and that of future generations.
