Future partners with Rad Power Bikes to slash carbon emissions
(SILVER SPRING, MD.) – January 11, 2022 – Future partnered with Rad Power Bikes, the largest ebike brand in North America, to make electric mobility more accessible to its members.
With FutureCard Visa®, cardmembers get 6% instant cashback for all purchases at Rad, that’s an additional savings of over $100 on most new ebikes*. Future promotes a sustainable start into the new year and offers savings for anyone looking 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."
According to a new study at Oxford University, people who cycled on a daily basis had 84% lower carbon emissions from all their daily travel than those who didn’t. Emissions from cycling can be more than 30 times lower for each trip than driving a fossil fuel car. A shift towards electric and shared mobility is a vital building block to reach a net-zero economy. Gas fueled transport is the largest contributor to carbon emissions in the U.S. There are an estimated 250 million cars on U.S. roads, with 59 percent of car trips just five miles or less. The EPA projects that if everyone in the U.S. left their cars at home for just half of their trips under one mile, it would save 2 million metric tons of CO2 per year, that’s the equivalent to taking 400,000 cars off the road.
“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.”
The FutureCard is one of several tools Future is building to help members to transition to climate-smart living and make informed decisions about their purchases and the impact on the planet. Cardmembers also get a free FutureScore, which offers the most accurate carbon footprint available and highlights personalized choices to decarbonize your life.
