Have a crazy sustainable commute this August 27th

See video

Friday, August 27th is the Crazy Sustainable Commute. 

The Crazy Sustainable Commute is a one-day campaign to get people thinking creatively about how they can commute to work. Their primary goal is to engage ‘car’ commuters with the idea that environmentally sustainable transportation can be fun. Anyone anywhere is invited to participate in creative, memorable, and eco-friendly ways. In Vancouver, there will also be a meet-up at the Vancouver Art Gallery at 5pm that will join with the critical mass bike ride.

Save money, get healthy, and become a leader in sustainability at your workplace. Think outside the car. The more creative and unique your ideas are, the greater our impact will be!

How do you take part? Easy! On August 27th:

  • Commute to work in a way that is non-traditional, fun and raises awareness
      (e.g., skateboard, roller blade, canoe, kayak, pogo stick, skip, or hop)


  • Use alternate transportation that day. Don't drive your single occupancy vehicle.


Let’s work together in reducing our carbon footprint by finding alternative transportation solutions. Each small step you take to reduce carbon emissions is one BIG step closer to a healthier planet and a healthier you. Challenge yourself, your co-workers or your competition. Show everyone how easy it is to make a difference and just how crazy and creative you can be! Take pictures or video and share your crazy commute experience on their Facebook Page. The cost is FREE!

Sign up today at the Crazy Sustainable Commute Website.


The Crazy Sustainable Commute was created in June 2010 by Steve Unger, Senior Director of SAP, a business Management and Software Applications Company located in Vancouver, BC. Steve Unger is an Ambassador for the David Suzuki Foundation’s At Work program and co-creator of the Green Café, another DSF program designed to support and promote nature’s diversity, healthy lifestyles, and sustainability.
