Google consumes a lot of electricity in order to run all those server farms that provide us with all their free services like GMail, Maps, and all their other apps. In an effort counteract that carbon footprint
, they are now offering free bicycles to many of their employees. Everyone who works for Google in Europe, the Middle East
and Africa will be offered a free Raleigh bike. Of course the company wants everyone to know who the source of the largess is so they will be carrying the Google brand name. So far their is no word on whether American Googlers will also be offered free bicycles to get out of their SUVs.
