Commuting the Green Way


A colleague turned me on to this cool site: The Green Bike Project. This is a reward-based program in King County, Washington that tries to get more people out on their bikes. Participants pledge to reduce their drive alone commuting by 60% or more.
For those people that already have bikes, you'll get a free tune up. Folks without bikes will be loaned a green bike. Upon fulfilment of the pledge, bike owners qualify for entry for a $1000 REI gift card; green bike-borrowers get to keep their green bike.

Pretty cool, if you ask me! Now all I have to do is move to Seattle, sign up, and steal my helmet back from my 3-year old nephew.

Great incentive program. I think that companies should be doing more of this type of incentive. Unfortunately it appears cities are making larger strides than the places which require the commuters to come to their locations.

Online is the best place to begin searching for auto advances for understudies - there are many loan specialists out there all going up against one another to attempt and win your business, which holds the rates down. Attempt a correlation webpage which will do a considerable measure of the diligent work for you - just enter your subtle elements and they will hunt down the best advances accessible online and get them up a rundown for simple examination.
