Opt to Act - Simple Action #25: Use public transportation, carpool, bike or walk one time this week.

Join REI in making the fight for life outdoors part of your life with The Opt to Act Plan - 52 weeks of simple actions to reduce your impact, get active, and leave the world better than you found it. Full details can be found at the Opt To Act Plan.

Week 25: Use public transportation, carpool, bike or walk to one event this week.

Emissions from vehicles make up 29 percent of the total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions released, according to the EPA. By choosing not to drive even once or twice this week, you can make a small but important dent. Instead, opt to bike and take part in National Bike Month, walk, carpool or ride public transportation to work or an event. You’ll log a workout, meet some new people and help to reduce environmental pollution.

Take part: May 17–23, 2020

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well lived.
