Yesterday we attended Landmark Ventures inspiring Social Innovation Summit and got to test ride Cardboard Technologies bike made from recycled cardboard! The Israeli company’s cardboard bike is the first commercial implementation of their patented technology. Unique in many ways, it is made primarily of recycled cardboard, along with recycled plastic and car tires. The cardboard itself is highly durable, and both fire and water resistant. Imagine a time when every plastic or cardboard product that is discarded into a recycling bin will contribute to the creation of a bicycle, wheelchair, toy or other useful product. The Economic Mission is helping advance their connections to prosper the West Coast market. #socialinnovation #bicycle #SIS18 #recycling #sustainability
