1 May, 5 June, 3 July, 7 August, 4 September... Vendredi Vert is a day when each of us can do a little something to improve the air we breathe. Every first Friday of the month:
- Walk, cycle
- Use the bus or train
- Ditch the wood fire for a day
Some of our car journeys can be avoided, with a positive effect for the community, but also for ourselves:
- Most of our exposure to particles occurs while we are in transport.
- 1/3 of our trips are shorter than one kilometer and, on this first kilometer, a cold engine emits 50 % more pollutants.
Vendredi Vert was set up by a group of locals who care about the air that we breathe and believe we should do something to help. More info: vendredivert.org
You're only one person, but together we're millions!
