Don't Think You Can Change the World? Think Again.

Did you know that 40% of all car trips occur within 2 miles of the home and that 50% of the working population drives less than 5 miles to work? Or how about the fact that between 1960 and today the average weight of a 6-11 year old has increased 11 pounds?

Sort of scary isn't it?
