Reduce

Speed and Sprocket Cycle Works is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • This year we will be aiming to recycling more of the plastic packaging our supplies and accessories come in through a TerraCycle Zero Waste Box

  • We will also be ordering parts and supplies through as locally sourced companies and distributors as possible.

Other Sustainability Notes

While we enjoy cycling for cycling's sake, we also know that a bicycle can be an agent of change, empowerment, and a green form of transportation. We firmly believe in taking care of the world around us, which is why we became a 1% for the Planet business soon after opening.
