Cutting carbon emission through cycling
Bike For Good are the largest bike refurbishing charity in Glasgow. They receive bike donations from all across the city, including old parts and frames. In the last year alone, they have diverted 1699 bikes from going to landfill, saving 250 tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of taking 41 cars off of the road. Their skilled and professional mechanics refurbish the donated bikes to sell in their shops. Old inner tubes and tyres that can no longer be used are sent to organisations who can re-purpose them and second-hand parts are sold in their shops so people can fix their own bikes.
