Happy Earth Day! Rings & Things has been awarded a brand-new bike for employees to use for errands during the day.
Spokane mayor, Mary Verner, presented select participants in Washington state’s Commute Trip Reduction program with their new Worksite Bicycles on Earth Day. For its voluntary participation in the CTR program (and with 96% of employees taking part!), Rings & Things received one of these fine bikes.
Ten local workplaces were given commuter bikes in The Chase Gallery, just outside the City Council Chambers. A whole package of items was presented to each business:
- A durable new Giant “Sedona ST” bicycle, built for comfort and “heads up” riding
- A Bell “Venture” adjustable-fit safety helmet
- A Kryptonite U-Lock/Flex Cable key-lock security locking system
- A bicycle tire pump with gauge for maintaining proper tire pressure
In a nice bit of recognition, Rings & Things’ diligent Employee Transportation Coordinator, Selina Shehan, was interviewed by two TV stations, KHQ (in a story headlined “Spokane Residents Live a Little More ‘Green’ “) and KXLY. View and read more at their websites!
