This is a partnership between two pretty amazing organisations in the US.
Bike Fixtation designs and manufactures public work stands, pumps, and vending machines for bicycle infrastructure. Picture vending machines with bike products, public pumps to pump up tyres, and repair stations to help you change a flat tyre. They have now augmented their vending machine to provide an inner tube collection point. Tubes collected go to Green Guru.
Green Guru upcycles inner tubes, wetsuits, climbing ropes, and banners into a range of products, including bags and bike gear.
It is a partnership made in heaven.
