What better way for us to bring to life the potential of recycling than to partner with Nespresso and craft a bike from recycled aluminium coffee capsules?
Introducing RE:CYCLE – a ride that’s a perfect marriage of sustainability and design. An instant icon of circular economy design. Recycling upcycled.
RE:CYCLE’s got all the finishing touches you’d expect from Vélosophy – and then some surprise additions. The striking purple frame is inspired by arpeggio (our favourite Nespresso coffee) while the bell is modelled on the iconic shape of the capsule.
The steam-bended oak carrier basket includes two cup holders, so you can take your coffee to go. This is the ultimate ride for any coffee fan.
We’ve been working with Nespresso for a while, and we must say, we’re impressed with their commitment to sustainability.
From their efforts to empower farmers through climate-friendly agriculture that improves livelihoods, to their carbon-neutral factories and world-wide recycling programme, Nespresso’s vision is that every cup of coffee has a positive impact on the world.
RE:CYCLE is a daily reminder that every small action we take can set off a process. Even something as small as recycling a coffee capsule can set a chain of re-creation in motion.
Endlessly Recyclable. Infinitely Beautiful.
