Join the Low Carbon Rush Hour

By joining the Low Carbon Rush Hour, you can help to cut the UK’s carbon footprint – and feel great in the process. Swapping your car journey to work for a cycle ride, a jog or a walk isn’t just good for the planet – it can help you to stay active, sleep better and be mentally alert and ready for the day.

Rely on your own steam

As Olympic Sprint Kayak champion and Team Green Britain Ambassador Tim Brabants explains, cycling to work can be a more dependable form of transport than driving.

Cut the carbon and feel better

Boost your confidence

Getting regular, daily exercise on your way to work can boost your confidence, and relax you ahead of work pressures or job interviews: Paralympic champion and Team Green Britain Ambassador Ellie Simmonds explains why she wouldn't be without it.
