Sperm bikes, electric cars and biodiesels, oh my!
Converting your company's transportation fleet to an environmentally friendly one can be a daunting and costly process, but the change can bring significant cost savings–and you're helping preserve our planet, which is a noble cause not to be taken lightly.
These seven companies have introduced innovative ways to make their companies' transportation more eco-friendly. Read on for more details and let us know about interesting alternatives you've seen around your neighborhood.
1. Nordisk Cryobank's Sperm Bike
Nordisk Cryobank, a European sperm bank, recently launched its "Sperm Bullitt," a sperm-shaped bicycle with a custom cooling system for transporting sperm samples to nearby fertility clinics.
The Sperm Bullitt is also a moving advertisement for the Copenhagen-based sperm bank. The website URL written on the side of the bike translates to "Become a sperm donor." Users visiting the website are greeted with information on how to get started with sperm donation.
The bike serves as an environmentally-friendly method of transporting sperm, as well as a way to attract new donors. We applaud the creative thinking that went behind this idea.
