You have three choices to get somewhere when traveling around the metro: you can drive there and pay costly gas prices, book a ride-sharing app that is also a bit pricey, or try your luck with public transport and be hassled.
Lines waiting for buses, jeeps, or trains that seem to not end — you might have been at the crossroads and convinced yourself to stay home instead. That has been the situation for many, more so after the reopening of lives after the long lockdowns.
However, more recently, many Filipinos have turned to bike commuting. It has become a normal sight to see people riding their bicycles around major cities. Despite the country’s unpredictable weather, more and more can be seen pedaling by themselves or even cycling in groups. They ride their bikes both for recreational and essential purposes like staying physically active, running errands, and heading to work.
Furthermore, bicycles are now turning into more ideal modes of transportation as they can easily squeeze their way into the frantic metro traffic and even squeeze through alleys and shortcuts that would otherwise not be accessible by cars.
But more than these reasons, many have turned to biking not only to stay away from the hassle of road transport but to lessen their carbon footprint. The conversations on how global warming is severely affecting the environment worldwide, primarily due to the excessive consumption of fossil fuels for transportation, have pushed more environmentally conscious people to look for sustainable alternatives to replace fossil fuels.
Now, more than ever, people from different walks of life are becoming more knowledgeable about their purchasing decisions. They opt for brands that have sustainability and green practices at their core – showing their concern for the planet’s well-being. Informed consumers actively seek out eco-friendly alternatives in replacement of their everyday essentials to promote lasting positive change for the environment.
