Field Museum Launches Shared Bike Program for Employees
Date:3/31/2008

- Bikes for meetings, errands, exercise.

- Reduce pollution, save money.

CHICAGO, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Field Museum will add to its already extensive "green" record by launching an innovative Shared Bike Program on March 31, 2008 - just in time for spring.

The Museum is a trendsetter for employee bicycle use. It encourages employees to bicycle to work by providing showers and bike parking, including a large, secure, indoor bike-parking facility. As a result, more than 100 of the Museum's approximately 575 full-time employees bike to work on a regular basis.

Initially, the Museum's Shared Bike Program will make three bicycles available March-November for employees to use during daylight hours. More bicycles will be added depending on demand.

Employees may use the bikes for personal or work-related reason - to run an errand, attend a meeting away from the museum, or just take a spin. The Museum expects to save money with this program by reducing expenditures for taxis, parking and messenger services.

"The Field Museum's Shared Bike Program is an ideal way to encourage more people to get on bikes," said Rob Sadowsky, executive director of the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation. "Companies that encourage their employees to ride bikes end up saving money on health-insurance costs. Plus, they get healthier, happier employees."

Other "green" initiatives at the Museum:

-- Take One Step, a program that encourages Museum visitors to purchase shares of carbon credits to offset the greenhouse gases created by their trip to the Museum;

-- Extensive solar panels on its roof;

-- A Renewable Energy Vehicle that runs on filtered waste vegetable oil and travels to schools, street fairs, and other public events teaching people about renewable energy;

-- Widespread use of energy-efficient fluorescent lighting;

-- Extensive recycling of paper; cardboard; printer
