I will walk to do nearby tasks once a week rather than driving

Not only are you saving money and living lightly, you’re also going to get some fresh air and exercise – it’s a win-win! Think trips like popping out to pick up milk, getting dinner or going to the gym – choose one trip a week and work up from there. Make this a habit and you'll save over $100 annually 

Make this pledge and your action could save 60 kg CO2e emissions per year - that's like burning 28kg of coal.

I will drive an electric car

The electric vehicle movement is growing fast in New Zealand, and once you’ve tried one you can see why! Low maintenance, no fuel costs, and a quiet ride. If you’re not sure about the whole idea of an ‘EV’, many of the big sellers such as Nissan, Hyundai and Tesla will take you for a test drive first to see if it will work for your lifestyle. If you would normally make these trips in a petrol engine car, you could save as much as $13,000 per year!

Make this pledge and you could save 1065 kg of CO2e emissions per year - that's like running 408 compact florescent light bulbs for 45 days non-stop.

I will look after my car - checking tyre pressure, motor oil, and driving smoothly

If you do need to drive, make sure your car is in top condition. Check your tyre pressure regularly, make sure you have the right kind of oil, and keep that driving nice and smooth to save up to $500 a year. 

Make this pledge and you could save 355 kg of CO2e per year - the equivalent embodied emissions from the production of 4,438 bananas.
