Save $438 When You Choose Bicycles Over Diesel Cars 😱

34 million (34,000,000) tonnes is the amount of carbon emission Singapore releases into the world annually. According to a research study, a single tonne of carbon emission is equivalent to S$288 worth of environmental damages. This essentially means that carbon emissions are costing Singapore 9.792 billion dollars (S$9,792,000,000) annually. 🤯

The annual environmental damages:

34,000,000 tonnes x $288/tonne = $9,792 billion

A tonne of carbon emission is produced through 6,000 kilometres of diesel vehicle operation and a little bit of quick math (yet again) tells us that the implied environmental cost is S$0.048/kilometre travelled. Suppose that a citizen travels 25 kilometres a day by bicycle (probably by SG Bike as it is your preferred bike-sharing company), he/she will save our environment approximately S$438 worth of damages annually. 🤑

What you will save in a year: $0.048/km x 9,125km = $438

Every ride is a ride in the right direction
