Bike Green

Buy the ultimate green bike: a Renovo Hardwood Bicycle is made with a custom, lightweight, hollow frame crafted from woods and bamboo. The company’s TT bike even made its way down the Queen K Highway during the 2010 Ironman World Championship.

Get your carbon frames from Trek, which recently instituted an innovative carbon recycling program, reclaiming carbon scraps and warranty frames. Plus, the company already uses entirely renewable electric power, advocates efficient shipping methods and offers employee incentives for carpooling and bike commuting.

Donate your used tubes to Seattle-based Alchemy Goods, which will convert them—along with other inner tubes, vinyl advertising banners and used seatbelt webbing from junkyards—into various über-hip items including backpacks and messenger bags.
