Groundwork staff pledge to promote pedal power

Posted on 14 September 2016

Groundwork UK colleagues have put down car keys and picked up cycle helmets today in honour of National Cycle to Work Day.

Cycling to Groundwork’s head office near Brindley Place, Birmingham, colleagues rode in from as far afield as Dorridge to do their bit for the environment and cut down on C02 emissions.

After taking up the pledge to cycle to work, colleagues were then rewarded with a well-deserved cup of coffee and a croissant to celebrate their success.

Nabila Gardner, Programmes Office at Groundwork UK said

"Like several of my colleague’s I cycle to work most days so it’s great for us all to be able to make this pledge as a team and an organisation to help the environment. It’s a wonderful achievement and we encourage other work places to get involved."

Groundwork UK has recently started a Sustainable Living Under Groundwork (SLUG) staff group to encourage all colleagues to be more environmentally aware in the work place. Initiatives include the development of a work garden, giving advice and recipe ideas for Meat Free Monday’s and upping our recycling game.
