Take a new approach to getting from A to B this year with the help of Urban Movement and their range of cost-effective and eco-friendly Electric Scooters. As Ireland’s first homegrown e-scooter brand, Urban Movement are the answer to those wanting to avoid the dreaded bumper to bumper daily grind, rising fuel prices, all the while doing their bit to switch to a more environmentally friend mode of transport.
Not yet convinced? Here are 5 reasons why Urban Movement is the ‘move’ in the right direction;
The Greener Choice:
Powered by rechargeable batteries, E-Scooters are free from emissions, making them an essential choice for those wishing to reduce their carbon footprint, and also save some much-needed coin which otherwise is spent on filling up the petrol tank. With Car Pollution one of the major causes of global warming due to carbon dioxides and greenhouse gases emitted, Urban Movement is the cleaner, greener choice.
Our Time Is Precious:
With time being of the essence and free hours in the day now only a luxurious dream, it’s time to pull pack some of those precious moments for ourselves, instead of spending them wasting away on public transport or behind the wheel of the car. Be it working from home, or back to office life once again, allow Urban Movement take the stress away from bus delays or hitting each red light during the day. Not only are they the zippy alternative to gas-guzzling hatchbacks, the rising trend of e-scooting’ around also results in fewer cars on the road, meaning we can spend less time in road traffic and more time chasing that work-life balance.
The old adage of ‘time is money’ sure does ring true when looking at the rising trend of E-Scooters – most major European Cities have implemented E-Scooters as a hop-on hop-off service, similar to Dublin Bikes, and many multinational organisations are investing in E-Scooter Bays, meaning their staff can efficiently make it to and from work and meetings in a shorter time frame, with less stress and hassle, and also in a more environmentally conscious way. What’s not to love!
Embrace The Outdoors
With 20% of the Oxygen we breathe going straight to feeding our brains, aiding its function, increasing the amount of fresh air we get can help in providing greater clarity, not to mention it’s also good for the soul to enjoy some much needed time away from the day to day slog and embrace the outdoors.
Mind your Mind:
Spending time in the great outdoors also does wonders for the mind – Serotonin release, the chemicals released that affect our moods, is down to the amount of oxygen in the book. Increasing the time we spend outside, as opposed to indoors or stuck in our cars, will be beyond beneficial for our mental health. Whizzing around freely on an e-scooter not only exposes us to fresh air but at the same time allows us to be present, to watch the world go by, while also keeping an eye on the road ahead! It provides us with a moment to reflect, to think and to find peace in the present.
Ditching the car for an electric scooter is not only a greener, cleaner way to travel, but it also reduces road congestion and public transport congestion. It means less time spent in traffic and less time in a cramped space with no fresh air. Get out and about in the fresh air and move freely in a safe, green and fun way on your e-scooter will most certainly reduce congestion as well as stress levels.
