In 2009, the US Census found the average American commuted 25 minutes just to get to work, and another 25 minutes to get home. That’s not as long as some commutes in India, China, or Mexico, but it’s still 208 hours each year, stuck in traffic. Hours you’re not with friends or family, or reading, working out, or relaxing. It’s 208 hours you’re not doing what you love, unless you love staring at the bumper of the car in front of you and waiting for traffic lights to change.
We don’t love those things. We love fresh air and fresh ideas of how the world could and should work. Our team members work from home in multiple roles. We’re trading time lost commuting for time spent doing what we love.
How’s your commute? Have you tried working outside the office? Getting rid of your commute even one day a week can make a big difference to your quality of life and your carbon footprint.
