WorldCommute.com Establishes First-Ever Green Commuting International Social Network
Web Site Enables Tracking of Carbon Offsets, Social Network, for Global Users
OSAKA, Japan – Embracing the global demand for solutions enabling eco-friendly transportation, CatEye, the leading global manufacturer of bicycle electronics, introduced WorldCommute.com, a not-for-profit, free social-network Web site designed to encourage, promote and track the use of non-motorized transportation around the world. CatEye, through the feature-rich Web site, promotes its core philosophies of environmentalism, personal health, safety, and active enjoyment in a way that engages and encourages average citizens to use non-motorized transportation as a way of life, and to more importantly make a difference in their part of the world.
WorldCommute.com is designed as a truly global interactive social networking platform, offered in six languages, to help track and record the positive contributions made by choosing human-powered efforts over a typical vehicle trip. WorldCommute uses various forms of measurement to encourage users to track and analyze a variety of human powered trips they take – by bike, walk, run, skate, wheelchair, skipping and otherwise – then create a profile to measure the impact on their personal life and the world. WorldCommute users will be able to interact individually and as groups with others and challenge each other to increase their commute participation and ultimately reduce their combined carbon offsets.
