This bike is reinventing how children learn to ride a bike and helping the earth, one recycled bike at a time.
The Wishbone Bike Recycled Edition (RE) is also made from 100% post-consumer recycled residential nylon carpet – kinda amazing! Used carpet was collected from homeowners across the US, then shaved and shredded. Glass fiber is added to the carpet for strength, then molded into millions of little pellets to be molded again into the bike frame.
Each bike diverts 7.5 lbs of used carpet away from landfills, as well as saves 7.5 gallons of oil that would’ve been used in making new plastics.
