ride your bike to the theater?

One Less Car

The other night I went out to dinner with my wife and my in-laws. We went to a great Indonesian restaurant not far from our house that we’d never visited before. After a great meal, I noticed a little sticker on the front door: blue and white with a stick figure riding a bike, it read “Bicycle Benefits.” I reached in my back pocket for my notebook to jot it down and look into it, but the notebook was missing. So, I said to my wife, Dawn, “remember bicycle benefits.”

Bicycle Benefits is a basic incentive program, and it works like this: individuals buy stickers, slap them on their helmets, and ride their bikes to participating businesses (restaurants, coffee shops, retail, etc.) and receive discounts. This could be adopted by virtually any business, encouraging people to get out of their cars and onto their bikes — including theaters.




what’s in a color?

"It should be about different kinds of symbols than the color green—wind farms, solar, renewable-energy laboratories, those things that are symbolic of the new energy economy. People think that we overuse the concept of green, and it could become trite in its expression.”
“This idea about green in a lot of people’s minds still conjures up this notion of a fringe or something that’s out-there. It doesn’t inspire this notion of a new America. It just seems more substantive than a color.” - Colorado governor Bill Ritter, Jr. in The New Yorker
