Passport recently sponsored Biketoberfest in the Charlotte, NC area. Sustain Charlotte, a non-profit organization helping to advance a region-wide sustainability movement, hosted the event in the city’s South End. The first-time event promoted sustainable transportation by creating a scavenger hunt for participants, urging them to walk, bike, or take public transportation across 20 different stops. Riders collected stamps in the official Biketoberfest Passport at places such as Triple C Brewing Co., Lenny Boy Brewing Co., and Romare Bearden Park. To earn passport stamps, people were responsible for completing sentences on canvas paper about what they believe Charlotte could look like. It was designed to engage the community.
Passport’s support of the event included designing and printing the material, a booklet for participants to carry around the event. The booklet was printed by MetroGraphics, a locally owned business committed to sustainable printing practices. The booklet was even printed on recycled paper.
