Yes, I know it's a bit late but I've got it; not to drive to work.
For too long I've spent over an hour each day stuck in traffic on the four mile journey over the Tyne to work and back, but no longer. For the past week it's been a swift walk to the Metro, which crosses the Tyne, before a bus journey to Traidcraft.
It works okay, costing a bit less and only taking a little longer than it does by car.
The main motivation is cutting my carbon emissions. Sitting in traffic by myself is probably the most unethical part of my life, so I'm trying to chop it out wherever possible.
One thing I've learned in this process is that winter is not the time to go carbon neutral...
By gosh it's cold out there!
