Providers of innovative climate-smart living solutions, Future, announce new partnership with Rad Bikes to reduce carbon emissions and create more awareness about electric riding
FutureCard Visa®, the green spending rewards card, recently partnered with Rad Power Bikes, the largest ebike brand in North America, as part of the goal of making electric mobility more accessible to its members. Consequently, holders of the FutureCard Visa® enjoy up to 6% instant cashback for all purchases at Rad, an additional savings of over $100 on most new ebikes. The partnership will serve as an incentive for more people to join the revolution in climate-smart mobility.
“Rad Power Bikes and Future share a passion to offer fun and rewarding ways for individuals and families across the country to lower their carbon footprint“, said Ian Haygood, Director, Performance Marketing at Rad Power Bikes. “We are excited about this partnership to bring the joy of riding to more people and show the positive impact it has on the planet.”
“We are thrilled about the impact this partnership can have for our members, who actively look for ways to lower their carbon footprint,” says Jean-Louis Warnholz, CEO and Co-Founder of Future. “Rad is a great fit as pioneers in making ebikes more accessible and practical for everyday use.”
Carbon Emissions And The United States
A new study at Oxford University revealed that people who cycled on a daily basis had 84% lower carbon emissions from all their travels than those that do not. It was also stated that emissions from cycling can be more than 30 times lower for each trip than driving a fossil fuel car. Consequently, a shift towards electric and shared mobility has been identified as a vital building block to reach a net-zero economy. Studies have revealed that gas fueled transport is the largest contributor to carbon emissions in the US. According to a projection by the EPA, about 2 million metric tons of CO2 can be saved yearly if everyone in the US left their cars at home for just half of their trips under one mile.
