George made good on his Crazy Sustainable Commute promise and walked to work – 19,477 steps or just over 15 kilometers. All in the spirit of friendly competition (ok, he wasn’t quite sure what I signed him up for but he’s a gamer..) and up for the challenge. Kallas spread the news of the Crazy Sustainable Commute to a number of friends and colleages receiving terrific support. From Vancouver City Councellors Peter Ladner and Suzanne Anton to our partners at the Vancouver Aquarium ( who cartwheeled to work! –www.crazysustainablecommute.org ) and Scott Gray who swiped his 10 year old’s 65lb single speed chopper bicycle for a cruise, supporters were coming out with any number of alternate modes of transport.
” I love the idea of getting people to think differently” Kallas says of his challenge ” it sure is a lot easier by car but getting out there really makes you think and have an appreciation for how many cars there are on the road.”
MET is a strong supporter of thinking different.
