Bicycle/walk instead of driving to school

Fun fact: For trips of up to 10 kilometers (km), cycling is usually the fastest way to travel within the city. In just 15 minutes, the average person can bike 3.5km. Bicycling and walking are not only a great way to reduce your dependency on oil (you remove 280 grams (g) of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air per kilometer you don\\\\\\\'t take the car), both are a fantastic way to increase your heart health as well. If you bicycle at a good pace for 30 minutes several times a week, you reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease, adult diabetes, and obesity by as much as 50%. Walking is also good for you! Someone who weighs 55 kilograms (kg) walking at a brisk pace for only 30 minutes burns 150 calories; while a 89kg person burns 235 calories. You can calculate how many calories your walking commute burns, online
