Children’s Bike Made from 100% Recycled Carpet
November 28th, 2014
Wishbone Bike Recycled Edition is made from old carpet. Seriously. Wishbone Design Studio uses pre-loved, residential carpet. It’s collected from home-owners in the United States, shaved to remove the backing, and shredded. They then add glass fibre for strength and turns it into millions of little resin pellets, ready for molding into a bike frame. This bike is reinventing how children learn to ride a bike and helping the earth, one recycled bike at a time.
What is really amazing is that it is highly adjustable and grows with a child. It easily converts from a tricycle to small bike to a bigger bike.
