Vancity Has The Right Idea

Ah ha! No sooner did I write my last post about wishing there were more positive green initiatives rather than a punishing gas tax, than I read an article today about Vancity and their employee environmental perks.

Below is a list of some of the benefits they offer:
  • discounts on transit passes and parking for carpoolers
  • small fleet of Smart cars and cruiser bikes for off-site staff meetings
  • free showers, lockers and bike storage
  • emergency guaranteed ride home program that pays for cab rides or a transit passes

Hopefully other employers will follow their lead and introduce similar policies, and the companies that already do have similar programs in place can make theirs publicly known as well to create more momentum...
