4 Ways to Make the Morning Commute More Sustainable

The world’s turn to environmentally friendly solutions has meant commuters are wondering how much impact they have too. Employers of the commuters are attempting to help too. It’s become a group effort, both in terms of solving the problem and performing the outcome. Here are three ways to help make your morning commute more sustainable.



Cycling, as well as walking, have become championed alternatives. They offer the chance at reducing carbon footprint, of course, but there’s the advantage of exercising while doing it which appeals to many commuters.


Cities around the world are pedestrianizing the centres of towns and cities to reduce the pollution in those areas, promoting walking and cycling.


Some are worried about the dangers of cycling on the road. The reports of London cyclist accident figures don’t do much to ease worries, despite knowing that insurance and solicitors can help out any incidents. However, for the most part, roadways and highways are now, more than ever, due to the environmental concerns, accommodating to cyclists.


Public Transport

Convenience dictates owning and using a car. It’s easy to sit in your car’s cabin, listen to your music or radio show, and be in your own space. It’s the favoured means of commuting for many people. Driving ticks an “independence” box. However, local and national government officials, and other concerned parties, in the United Kingdom and around the world, are beginning to emphasis the utility and effectiveness of public transport as a means of commuting. They are investing in making them better too, expanding the amount of routes, stops, and availability of these services. This has become an important topic now pedestrianizing centres and moving to ban petrol and diesel cars have been announced in recent years.


Public transport is still a polluter. Buses use fossil fuel. Trains use fossil fuel. Subways, metros, and undergrounds use fuel. However, they can take more people from one place to another than a car can. The idea is simply to have less people on the road, which means there are less emissions and is less noise.


Car Pooling

Another solution which contributes to a lowering of on-road vehicles is car-pooling. If you and a colleague, even multiple colleagues, live near each other, picking up one another to drive to and from work is an effective way to reduce your carbon footprints. It’s valuable social time too. A moment and place for you both to talk about things in a different environment from the office.



Coffee, tea, snacks – any sustenance – are fundamental to mornings. Many commuters have them on the go. A run to the local coffee shop or a franchise drive-thru is routine. Their products often, though, become litter, consciously or accidentally, or at least contribute to landfills and general waste. Many of these companies, in response, and other independents have initiatives to make packaging biodegradable and recyclable. However, there is also the option of having a reusable flask or bottle. Typically, franchises will fill them up over the counter for you instead of handing out their cups and bottles.
