Vendredi Vert - 1st Friday of each month

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:

  1. Walk, cycle
  2. Use the bus or train
  3. Carpool
  4. 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!
