The Rainforest Foundation and nümi Scooters announce a Partnership for the Protection of the Rainforest

Sycamore, Illinois, October 22, 2015—An ambitious national start up involved in eco-friendly, electric transportation has formed a partnership with Rainforest Foundation for the purposes of donating 2% of its sales toward the protection of the rainforest.

The founder of nümi Scooters, Ron Glogovsky, is both an entrepreneur and father of five, who’s passionate about the environment and the growing issue of climate change. Building a company on green-values, while evolving next-generation transportation, is both a natural fit and a worthy cause.  “Marketing eco-friendly products to the next generation is important,” says Glogovsky, “to help promote environmental awareness and an eco-friendly lifestyle as they get older.”  Glogovsky, for example, only drives electric cars and believes the likelihood that his children will do the same is greatly increased because of this influence. While electric cars are still too-often the domain of dedicated adults who can afford them, nümi Scooters makes electric transportation possible for a much wider range of the population with safe, fun and affordable electric scooters and ebikes for all ages.

The Rainforest Foundation couldn’t be more pleased to see electric transportation replace gas-fueled vehicles, which create 20 pounds of carbon dioxide with each gallon of gasoline burned. Switching from traditional cars to electric vehicles, especially those powered by solar energy, is a significant step in combatting climate change.  “Replacing gasoline fueled cars with electric vehicles is a step in the right direction, and one of the many strategies necessary to protect our climate,” says Suzanne Pelletier, Executive Director of Rainforest Foundation.  “We’re pleased to see companies like nümi Scooters growing in this space, we support them and are grateful for their co-commitment to protecting the rainforest.”

Aligned with the mission of the Rainforest Foundation, Glogovsky confirmed “nümi Scooters is pleased to support their work with an ongoing donation of 2% of each nümi scooter or ebike sale.”
