1 Travel with friendsIf you must use a car, start a lift-share scheme with other parents. You will lower emissions, and save money on petrol, too.
2 Be proactivePut a piece in the school bulletin or website inviting parents to join your scheme. It may also encourage other parents to form their own scheme.
3 Get on your bikeEven better than using your car, use a bike. Your child will love pedalling along beside you, and you’ll both get fitter in the process.
4 Walk the walkWalking is, of course, the ultimate eco-friendly way to get your child to school. For young, slower children, you can turn the walk into a game of racing between the lamp posts.
5 Bussing it School buses are rare these days, but if you live in a remote area, you could petition your council for one as an eco-friendly investment.
