'Re-Cycle': Bike made from 300 coffee pods

Aug 29, 2019 17:47 IST

To make the impact of food waste a little less on the environment, Swiss coffee company Nespresso partnered with Swedish startup Vélosophy to create a bicycle using 300 recycled coffee pods. The aim of the project is to show coffee lovers the potential of recycling their used aluminum Nespresso capsules as the company has received criticism in the past for the high amount of waste it produces. It shows how food waste can transform into beautiful bicycles. The RE:CYCLE model is priced at 1,290 euros (approximately one lakh rupees), with only 1,000 of the limited edition bikes available.
