Scots resolve to do more walking

Scots resolve to do more walking
Scottish people are going green in 2009, with 33 percent of them pledging to walk more often.

Another 34 percent have expressed plans to recycle more waste while 34 percent will use energy efficient light bulbs, according to an omnibus survey.

Despite the chilly weather, a brave 15 percent have said they plan to drive less in the new year and instead opt for walking or taking public transport.

Scotland's environment minister Michael Russell said: "To help prevent climate change and protect the environment for future generations, we all need to reduce the impact of the way we live.

"So this new year why not make one of your resolutions a greener one and take a small step that will make a huge difference."

He added that it was "great to see that so many Scots are already planning to go greener in 2009".

Other environmentally-friendly measures being taken up by Scots this year are turning the heating down and cycling more.
