By changing your commute, you can generate less CO2 and burn more calories for a healthier world and a healthier you. You might burn 170 calories in 15 minutes of running (source). Saving 38.2 kilograms of CO2 is like replacing an incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb (source) - how many does your company replace?

Walk/Ride Day can change our commuting habits. Green commutes emit less carbon dioxide than typical car commutes, and can involve carpooling, walking, biking, running, and many forms of public transportation. Healthier commutes burn more calories, so break out the tennis shoes and get walking!
