The Ripple Effect
Occasionally at FlyKly we come across small articles that really resonate with us.
A recent article from Grist, an esteemed independent green news source, highlights how big urban changes are happening at the local, neighborhood level.
“While cities have been leaders in the effort to combat climate change, much of the action within cities occurs at the neighborhood level. “The neighborhood is a geography, a scale that resonates with people,” says Rob Bennett, executive director of the nonprofit Portland Sustainability Institute. “Neighborhoods have always been a powerful and important part of how we view city-building, and how we view ourselves as citizens.”
The Robert-Moses era of massive, top down planning seems to have come to end.
At FlyKly we believe in creating small, local changes that create disproportionately large, global effects.
Do FlyKly bikes do this? Absolutely.
When you choose to ride FlyKly, you are choosing to travel in a way that is beautiful, quiet and clean. This may seem like a small choice, but the effects add up. You’re helping the air be a little cleaner, the streets to be a little more peaceful.
Making an impact doesn’t have to be a huge endeavor. Sometimes it can be a small thing. Sometimes it can be about how you get there.
