Mayor Tom Smisek of Coronado was kind enough to come on down and attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony of Ninthlink’s new office bike rack on July 15, 2008, showing his and the City of Coronado’s support for local area business efforts to “think green” and help solve today’s current problems with high gas prices and air pollution.
Ninthlink’s bike rack is a symbolic gesture at promoting alternative methods of transportation to and from work. Ninthlink encourages other San Diego businesses, large and small, to consider building their own bike racks and encourage employees to “think green” when it comes to the work commute.
Why the bike rack? Gas prices are outrageous today, increasing at an alarming rate. By the end of 2008, gasoline could very well be $6-7 a gallon. In response to this problem, many people are now commuting to their jobs, either by public transportation, walking, or riding their bikes to the office.
Coronado Mayor Tom Smisek agrees, and joined Ninthlink in the ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 15 that officially opened the Ninthlink bike rack for business.
Riding a bike means you have to park it somewhere, right? Addressing this issue with both a global and local consciousness at heart, we here at Ninthlink have built an inner-office bike rack for its employees.
The bike rack not only provides a secure area for employees to park their two-wheel mode of commuting, but also expresses a positive approach to environmental and social concerns.
Ninthlink’s lead designer and artist, Matt Stallings, is thinking green outside the office by filling his gas tank half-way each month and riding his bike everywhere else. Ninthlink’s Chris Morrow rides to and from work, and in fact conceived and built this bike rack for us!
By thinking green, Ninthlink aims to not only heighten global awareness in its offices, but show its clients and other San Diego businesses that transformation always starts with the little things – with this grass roots intention, affirmative change will build on itself, expand, and have long-lasting positive effects in San Diego for its people, commerce, environment, and economy.
Ninthlink encourages San Diego residents, businesses, and everyone around the globe to share your “Green Idea” with us online at www.ninthlink.com. Together, with enthusiasm and creativity, we can build affirmative change.
