CYCLE TO WORK A SCHEME THAT DOESN’T COST THE EARTH!


CYCLE TO WORK A SCHEME THAT DOESN'T COST THE EARTH!

How much good does your daily commute do for you? If you’re trapped in a train, or driving along in a car, then probably not much good at all. What if we could tell you there’s a way you can get to work that will save you money, better the environment and make you healthier?

As part of the Government’s plan to reduce carbon emissions and promote a healthier lifestyle the Cycle to Work Scheme was created and Ecolution are proud to say we are now a participating member in this fantastic scheme!

At Ecolution we are big fans of cycling and we are now encouraging our employees to take this up as a method of commuting. Having researched this scheme, we saw it was a great way to promote sustainability within our company and also improve the quality of life for our employees.

Not only that but the bikes are available for our employees to use in their leisure time as well as to commute to and from work.

Still not convinced? Here are five great reasons to start cycling to work.

Save money on your bicycle

If your workplace, like Ecolution, offers a cycle scheme then not only will you be able to pay your bicycle off monthly via your payroll, but with salary sacrifice you could also be saving money on tax and national insurance.

Save money on your commute

If you’re cycling each day you won’t need to fill up the tank on your car nearly as often! Think of all the savings you could be making and if you’re skipping a train or bus journey you’ll be saving money there too!

Fit more exercise into your day

The NHS advises we get 150 minutes of exercise each week. If cycling takes you just 15 minutes each way, and you cycle Monday to Friday, then that takes care of your entire weekly exercise quota!

Avoid traffic

There are few things more frustrating than bad morning traffic. On a bicycle that could be a thing of the past! You won’t have to stick to roads, you can venture off onto paths and avoid all that traffic!

Help the planet

In 2013 CO2 accounted for more than 80% of the greenhouse gasses emitted by the UK1. As CO2 is one of the main players in global warming, reducing how much we put out into the atmosphere is important. An average new car sold in 2015 emits 124.6g of CO2 per km2. This means that even if you’re driving a new, more efficient car, an 8km (nearly five mile) commute each way would rack up nearly 2KG of CO2 per day! Over a year, imagine how much you could reduce your CO2 emissions by choosing to pedal instead of pressing the gas!
