Travel

When considering ways to protect the environment, most people think of the pollution created by cars and other vehicles. It is one of the most direct ways we encounter pollution in our daily lives and can have a huge impact on air quality and our health. 4.2 million people around the world die each year as a result of air pollution*, and the WHO believes that 99% of the global population are exposed to airborne pollutions that can harm our health. However, not everyone has equal access to public transport and this infrastructure is currently not always accessible.
