Walk to School Week 2012 will take place between 21st-25th May this year. Last year an astounding 1.6 million children in over 6000 schools ditched the school run as part of Walk to School Week. We think this sounds great and a great chance to embrace the weather (even if it's raining), don the trainers and get the kids excited about walking.
Did you know that if we all swapped one car journey a week for walking instead, car traffic levels would reduce by at least 10%! Walking has so many indirect environmental benefits, from reducing carbon dioxide levels, to showing more interest into urban public spaces. So why not help preserve the environment by joining in on the walk to school fun!
A pollution free week would not be the same however, without an equally eco-chic bag to take with whilst you're on the school run (or walk, as it will be). At For-Keeps we have searched worldwide for some of the most stylish and versatile eco-friendly bags and shoppers. Such as The Reisenthel City Rucksack, a combination of shopper and backpack for all eventualities. This super versatile bag is smart enough for work, and practical enough for the walk to school run. It comes in a range of great colours too.
