Hello Orange Pedal Website visitors! I would like to share a fun little thing happening in the world right now concerning bikes and coffee (our two specialities!).
So, Nespresso paired with a Swedish bike brand, Vélosophy, and together they created RE-CYCLE, a stylish bike made out of recycled aluminum Nespresso pods! They are hoping to show people what they can do with their recycling, and motivate people to recycle their Nespresso coffee capsules.
1,000 RE-CYCLE bikes will be sold starting August 12, and each will cost $1,290.00. They are a pretty purple color, a nod to Nespresso’s popular Arpeggio coffee, and they are equipped with a coffee capsule shaped bell, and cup holders in the basket in front.
These bikes are being sold for a good cause too, for every bike they sell or rent out, another is given to a schoolgirl in Africa in order to improve her access to education!
This idea is very cool, and it is fun to see coffee and bikes reuniting to make the world better! Though Orange Pedal does not have enough recycled aluminum to make bikes, we do have some cool bikes here and the coffee to go with it to mimic the same RE-CYCLE experience!
