A MONTH-LONG campaign involving free fitness pedometers is set to boost not only residents' health and fitness but also the environment.
As part of Sustainable Wagga's efforts in encouraging residents to live more sustainably, anyone who sends their address to them will receive a pedometer.
Wagga City Council's environment education officer Sam Pascall said the initiative is about taking small steps towards more active travelling.
"It's about substituting small car trips — whether that's walking, riding your bike or rollerblading," Ms Pascall said.
"If you do the little things, they all add up.
"Last month, it was about litter because we had Clean-Up Australia Day.
"So this month it's active travel."
The campaign hopes to encourage residents to be more proactive in active travel for long-term health benefits.
