Jacquie Ottman’s New Rule of Green Marketing Number 11:

 The greenest products represent new concepts (and likely, new business models) with significantly less impact.If we simply keep greening up the same old “brown” products we’ve been using forever, we’re never going to get to sustainability.

With over 20,000 bikes in about 1500 self-aservice rental kiosks, the bikes are a convenient, cheap, trendy and emission-free way for locals and tourists to get around town. C’est bon!
