Decreasing your Delivery Footprint

At every job I've ever had, from my first internship to my current position, there has been a need to get materials from one place to another. As a member of the Millennial generation, my delivery needs have been cut drastically by email, but there are still occasions that require a hard copy arriving, and ASAP!

I've been very lucky to work in a city where often this can be accomplished in an environmentally-friendly manner: via bicycle courier. Anyone who has ever driven in DC knows that getting around by bike can be much more effective than driving or riding in a cab.

It was with great pleasure that I read that bicycle couriers are becoming more and more popular: Unburdened by Gas Costs, Bike Couriers See a Chance. Check it out and next time you're sending a package by courier, maybe it'll go by bike (or tricycle, or skateboard, or whatever)!
