iCANwalk Pledge – Walk & Bike More, Drive Less

I can do my part to create a cleaner environment by pledging to make the shift from travelling by car to active transportation like walking, biking, and in-line skating for short trips for 1 month.

Using active transportation:

  • Reduces green house gas emissions and improves air quality,
  • Doesn’t take a lot of extra time – 2km = 20-30 minutes walking or 8-10 minutes biking,
  • Reduces our dependency on oil,
  • Is good for my health and saves me money!

I pledge to use active transportation for 1 month!

The information that you provide in the pledge is being collected by us and may be shared our partners.
