Cycling to Work

By: Stuart Cocks

As some of you may know, I am always looking for ways to follow the three R's of Reduce, Reuse & Recycle, and tend to forcibly drag everyone else along.

Given this, I thought it would be great if I encourage others to reduce energy use too. To inspire you all I have decided to cycle from my house in Sheffield to work (38 miles).

To make sure I'm no the only one working, if you all pledge to save 5,000kg of CO2 then I'll cycle home as well! So that is a round trip of 76 miles (about 7 hours) with a full working day in the middle.

I am asking for sponsorship but I'm not asking you to give me your change; I'm asking you to create change.

The DoNation website is trying to create a more sustainable world and the environment needs our action more than it needs our cash.

Make a pledge to help make our world a better place. Pick from one of the top Do Actions below, or browse more by clicking the ‘pledge’ button above. No need to limit it to one - do as many as you dare!

Some are really easy; others take a bit more effort, but every one helps our environment, health, or well being. And remember - you only have to try it for two months.

So please, get doing!

These are the actions that we think are most apt right now. There are many more to chose from here.
