The cycling industry has always been associated with an eco-conscious lifestyle. Going to work every day, for example, will reduce your carbon footprint and lead to fewer cars and pollution.
It is funny how a product that benefits people and the earth still leaves a footprint. Which is something that must be talked about.
We are fully committed to contributing and supporting all essential work in key areas of People in need and the planet with its environmental issues and we discover our areas of focus and nonprofit partners in their quest to bring about solutions.
We are ambitious with our commitments and taking quick action to reduce our environmental impact. Each business, whether it may be a bike manufacturer or a car manufacturer, we all have an environmental footprint that adds to the climate crisis.
How are we doing our part to be associated with an eco-conscious business?
- Design using recyclable material:
Our design team has been given the direct mandate that all materials we will endeavour to use must be recyclable plastics, recycled TPU or TPR or use Silicone and we are in Research and Development for the use of secondary alloy.
- Reduce plastics in our packaging:
In our bike carton packaging, we have started to remove all plastics in our bike wrappings and further cut non-recyclable materials in our bike packing by 45%. We moving to a policy of Less Material=Less Waste, by reducing the amount and size of our packaging - we reduce the number of materials to be recycled. We can also ship more units per container and a few containers shipped results in less pollution.
We are committed to making this a sustainable journey for all.
OUR 5 AREAS OF FOCUS TO REDUCE OUR FOOTPRINT:
- Remove plastic waste from packaging
- Reduce travel behaviour
- Consolidate shipment to retailers
- Using recyclable material for the design process
- Protect new trails
