Zipcar: Low-Car Diet 2011 SWAG

Usually "Free Stuff" is code for "crap nobody wants". Clearly I'm not accustomed to the classy outfit that is Zipcar because today I received a basket of goodies including:
-MBTA Charlie Card
-Whole Foods gift card from Symphony store
-Urban AdvenTours perks
-Boloco gift card
-Jabra pair of sport headphones
-Bags and bags of PopChips
-New England Aquarium movie passes

All this was sent to me because I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in the Zipcar Low-Car Diet campaign, which you can read more about here.

Earlier this week I wrote about the start of the program which you can read here. I plan to post periodic updates about the 30-day challenge on my blog. If you are a Zipster (apparently that is what Zipcar users call themselves) let me know. For those not familiar, Zipcar is a car-sharing service that operates on numerous college campuses and in many cities in North America and the United Kingdom.

This particular challenge from Zipcar focuses on ways we can use alternative forms of transportation (e.g. Metro, biking, walking etc...) I plan on riding my bike to the Whole Foods Market at Symphony Hall later this week and use the home delivery service. I know I'll be using most of the items that the generous corporate sponsors provided and I want to say "Thank You" to Zipcar for selecting me and to the cool sponsors for lending their support and name to promoting the Low-Car Diet.

Congratulations. Though I must admit. I've been an avid pedestrian since about 1994. YAY!

That pic gives new meaning to the word "SWAG". At least it does for me.
