This year, 60 Kräuter Mix employees once again took up the “Cycle to work” scheme. Between June 1 and September 30, all 60 pedaled their way to work. The company from Abtswind (Germany), which produces dried herbs, vegetables and spices, is Mix for Kids’ greatest supporting member. The company has now been taking part in this nationwide initiative from the health insurance provider AOK and the German Cyclist’s Association since 2005.
Over the course of the campaign, Kräuter Mix employees cycled a total of 32,411 kilometers. The top performer, with a one-way commute of 34 kilometers, managed 4624 kilometers over 68 days – and all that on an ordinary bike! Forty-seven employees cycled to work at least 20 times.
But this wasn’t just a sporting commitment: These Kräuter Mix employees did their bit to protect the environment while boosting their own health. And that’s not all! For every kilometer cycled, the company donated ten cents to Mix for Kids, ultimately totaling 3241.10 euros. In recognition of their achievements, the cyclists all received a goody bag containing some handy pieces, including a tube scarf for Covid-free rides and encounters.
