An agency of cyclists takes to two wheels.
GREENSBORO, NC - Sales Factory, an insights, strategy and activation company based in Greensboro has fostered a community of cyclists. The agency employees are used to giving up their four wheels for two, and this week is no exception. Sales Factory biked to work on Friday, September 21 in celebration of Car Free Day.
Car Free Day is an international event that takes place every September 22. People are encouraged to leave the car at home and bike, walk or take public transportation to get around.
“Getting around in Greensboro is easy with a car. We are such a drivable city that we often take for granted how our trips to the office impact the environment. At Sales Factory, we like to pay attention to days like Car Free Day that draw attention to improving the environment and inspiring healthy, active living,” said Ged King, CEO of Sales Factory.
Cycling is important to the agency culture at Sales Factory. Sales Factory’s participation in Car Free Day is focused on reducing the agency’s carbon foot-print, building community within the agency and inspiring healthy activity.
“We picked Friday to participate in Car Free Day so we could ride together and make a bigger impact. Saving the car commute to work is an easy way to make a large impact and riding as a group helps us hold each other accountable,” said Emily Bratton, Director Digital and event organizer.
Sales Factory met at Jaycee Park in Greensboro this morning and rode together to the Sales Factory office. After the day’s work, the agency will ride back together at 4:30 p.m.
