SMF Challenged to Commuting by Bicycle (France)

Two-week challenge of commuting by bicycle

Collecting PET bottle caps

Sharp Manufacturing France S.A. (SMF) took part in a challenging event "Au boulot à vé lo" (To work by bicycle) , organized by a local environmental association “CADRes”, Alsatian Chambers of Commerce and Alsatian County Councils.

Aiming at preventing global warming and others, participants used bicycles to commute to SMF instead of cars for two weeks. This year marked the 4th of the event. Ten SMF employees successfully completed this two week challenge in all weathers, completing a total distance of more than 500 km.

SMF also joined a campaign of collecting PET bottle caps in cooperation with a local community "68000 P'tits Bouchons." The sales from this campaign will be donated to support groups for physically challenged people through the 68,000 P'tits Bouchons.
