In recent years, bicycle use has grown in communities across the country. This shift allows riding individuals to decrease their cost of living with lower automobile-related expenses, to spend less of their time dealing with the headaches of intense traffic, and to elevate their personal fitness. However, with the increased use of bikes also comes the need for greater safe cycling education, specialized bike lanes on roads, and community support and encouragement for a successful bicycle program.

Whether they’re motivated by concern for their health, their bank accounts or the environment (or all three), many people – particularly college students and Millennials - are carrying reusable water bottles these days. There will always be demand for a quick, cool drink of water at a drinking fountain, but today consumers are also asking for an easy way to refill their portable water bottles. Water bottle filling stations, including those that retrofit onto existing drinking fountains, are a perfect solution.

Connectrac® wireways are the best floor-based solution for bringing power, data and communications from the wall to all interior commercial applications. Connectrac offers the flexibility to meet the demands for new technology connectivity while maintaining the aesthetic and structural integrity of the building – all without the expense and inflexibility of core drilling, trenching or floor boxes. According to a recent RSMeans study, Connectrac saves facility directors and electrical engineers 50% or more compared to core drilling or trenching in both new construction and retrofits of older buildings.

Whether they’re motivated by concern for their own health or the environment (or both), many people are carrying reusable water bottles these days. You could refill your water bottle at a drinking fountain, but drinking fountains weren’t designed for this purpose. Elkay®, which has been manufacturing drinking fountains in the USA since the 1960s, introduced the ezH2O® bottle filling station in 2010 in response to consumer demand for drinking water and the growing concern regarding the environmental impact of bottled water. ezH2O also allows you to refill your bottle more quickly. ezH2O can fill a 16-ounce bottle in about five seconds; traditional fountains need at least 20 seconds.
