Crocs Announces new Initiative
Crocs. You either love them or you hate them. Me, I'm a fan of Chaco. Enough said.
There have been a growing number of accidents that have occured involving Crocs and escalators in the past and despite the notion from some that parents should actually supervise their children when riding an escalator (In care you're wondering - yes, I have kids) the number of accidents are increasing.
Stores have begun to put up signs trying to warn people.
In an effort to be "proactive" (read - save their bottom-line), Crocs has launched a new initiative to educate customers on escalator use.
Here's a Backcountry Blog exclusive sneak preview of how to use an escalator when wearing Crocs:
• Stand facing forward in the center of the step
• Step on and off carefully
• Do not touch sides below handrail
• Avoid the sides of the steps where shoe entrapment can occur
• Supervise children at all times
I've got a suggestion - why don't they educate their customers on the value of getting some exercise by using the stairs? After all, they are a Boulder based company, right? 6 comments
