Eco-conscious green transportation enthusiasts are in for a treat, as the world’s first 100% recycled bicycle comes onto the market. Appropriately called ReCycle, the cool rides are made from used aluminum, and come in a variety of colors and styles, inspired by the global village in which we live. The brainchild of designer Bryce Edmonds, the ReCycle bike is the greenest ride on the road.
Edmonds came up with the idea to create the world’s first 100% recycled bicycle thanks to inspiration from the “ingredients” listing on a recycled messenger bag, which he recognized as bike parts such as rubber and aluminum. Intrigued and inspired, he decided to use those materials to create a stylish and recycled bike.
The idea behind ReCycle is to further the message of green transportation, by reducing our waste and carbon output when buying a bicycle. With an approved prototype in tow, Edmonds has created a line of bikes for every cyclist, all from recycled and reused materials- all made in the USA. With world-class names like mBula (a cruiser), Moshi Moshi (a fixed gear bike), and Mudmaste (a mountain bike), there is a bike for every type of bike user- from leisure rider to off-road adventurist.
ReCycle has launched a Kickstarter campaign to drive up sales, and get enough orders to make the bikes affordable to produce. With perks like totally customized models, their campaign is a way to get your own totally recycled bike before everyone else!
