I Love Bikes… and Europe

Love, love, love… and the scheming to move to Scandinavia continues (even if only in my mind).

Copenhagen Bike Share

Digging the new bike share designs that won a contest sponsored by the city of Copenhagen. Good looking and functional; definitely a combination that should get more people riding.

We’ve posted more pictures over at Under Solen — go take a look!

Coca Cola at Copenhagen

leave a comment »

I was a little appalled when I found out the mega-multinational Coca Cola was a key sponsor of the Hopenhagen campaign. But it raises the question: can a multinational work in the environment’s best interest? An excerpt from my post over on EcoSalon:

All eyes are on Copenhagen this month as the drama events of the UN Climate Change Conference play out. But those eyes aren’t just the ones of climate change activists and greenies. Multinationals are just as involved – even global beverage giant, Coca Cola, is descending on the Danish capital.

Working with other media, marketing, tech and creative partners, including DuPont and Gap Inc., Coca Cola was instrumental in launching the Hopenhagen campaign. The result? An interactive online campaign as well as lots of exposure on the ground in Copenhagen. Known for its creative advertising and branding, Coca Cola released a special Hopenhagen set of posters, seen all over town for the duration of the conference.

On Coca Cola’s Hopenhagen website, the company encourages visitors to take action against climate change and learn more about recycling and water as well as Coca Cola’s plant bottle, a soda bottle made form 30% plant-based materials (that means it’s still 70% plastic!). But supporting a good cause shouldn’t come without questions.

Big and Small Players in Carbon Emissions

I posted this blog post about carbon emissions today over on the Under Solen blog, but I think it deserves to get posted here as well.

From Under Solen:

In our ongoing coverage about how climate change is affecting us and how people in the U.S. are taking action, today we bring you a couple of graphics and statistics to show just who’s emitting carbon. Thanks to the New York Times for the visuals. And if you’re interested in carbon emissions per capita, make your way over to this useful Google guide, made with World Bank data, that you can easily search by country, and compare statistics.

The U.S. – 20% of emissions, 30% of G.D.P. 5% of people.

Per capita, the U.S. emits 19.5 metric tons of CO2. The world average? 4.5.

copenhagen transport

Found this over at one of my favorite blogs, Copenhagenize. Promotion of both cycling and public transportation is something all cities should strive for.
