Green Your Job: Bike to Work

Bike commuters in San Francisco Whether you work full-time, part-time, or are looking for a job, we've got tips for reducing your environmental impact at work. This week we're showing you how to turn your career into a green job.

Tip #1: Green Your Commute

Riding your bike to work is a great way to stay fit while you go green. As an added bonus, bicycle commuters are eligible to receive a monthly $20 reimbursement from their employers under the new economic stimulus. Companies can deduct the expense from their federal taxes. The Bicycle Commuter Act went into effect on January 1, 2009, so let your employer know that you'd like to participate.

Tip #2: Reduce Paperwork

Tip #3: Pack a Smart Lunch

Tip #4: Seek Green Jobs
