Week 11: Transportation to the office.

In week 11 of the 52 Weeks of Good campaign we will look at how an office can create change and make a difference by encouraging different transportation options. Take a look at this picture and see just the space impact different modes of transportation have on our surroundings.

The environmental impact aside, it is pretty unbelievable how much room all 60 cars take up. Try offering staff different modes of transportation. At Brown Paper Tickets every employee is given the option of receiving a monthly bus pass. Not only does that help employees get to work everyday, but as a company, they are cutting down on their carbon footprint. Another idea is to encourage your employees to walk or bike to work once a week. The convenience of a car is pretty hard to beat, but I bet you can get a few people to change their mode of transportation at least once a week and what a difference you will be making!

    Saw this picture yesterday and it inspired me to ride my bike to work today! Had a great ride in and looking forward to the ride home. The only problem with riding in to work, is that feeling of wanting to ride right on by and keep going! Not because I don’t want to work (I love my job!) just cause the feeling of being on my bike is awesome : )
