Aramex has announced that it will be deploying hybrid bikes in Lebanon to deliver its courier:

In line with its commitment to environmental sustainability, Aramex, the global logistics and transportation solutions provider, today announced the introduction of a new range of bikes, incorporating the latest innovation in hybrid technology, to its operations in Lebanon. The new hybrid bikes will be utilized by the company’s couriers across all stations in the country.

I’ve highlighted the words today announced for a reason. On their website, the date of the press release is shown as May XX, 2010. It seems that somebody jumped the gun and forgot to edit the date before uploading it onto their Media Center. Based on the dateline of newspapers who received the press release, today means June 5, 2010 (in case you were really eager to know).

On a similar note, two Lebanese bloggers have also taken the fight for green to the streets of Beirut: Nadine Feghali and Dima Boulad have decided to “lay the grass” so to speak.
