It’s Valentine’s Day so GreenCommunications Initiative (GCI) will be at the Mar Vista Farmer's Market Green Tent this Sunday, February 15, 2015. We'll BRING THE LOVE with our Walk It Mar Vista! Play the Walk It! V-Day Challenge -- and guess how much time you can save and how many calories you can burn by walking around your neighborhood! Think of how healthy you’ll feel (and how many pounds you can lose!!!) by choosing to WALK instead of getting in your car. GCI will give you a much-deserved Valentine for your efforts!
Walk It! is simple. Just choose to walk/bike/skateboard/hula hoop any errand or commute </= 1 mile. The obvious benefits – better health, more exercise, weight loss, more time with friends, family, dog (!) – add to the potential for $$ savings in lowered gas costs, no GYM FEES and supports our local businesses and community. Most important, it’s a simple, feel good way to have a positive impact on our environment.
Statistics indicate that the overwhelming majority of American commutes are short distance. A whopping 30% are between 1-5 miles. If we can Walk-A-Mile to reduce this figure, we can have a tremendous impact on the successful reduction of carbon in our atmosphere and ultimately, the effects of climate change.
