We are always searching for new ways to innovate and improve. This year we are making a change.
Starting in 2022, we are upgrading our black ripstop fabric, on all our black bags, to a 100% recycled, waterproof fabric. This durable new material is making it’s debut on our Alpha SMART bags, which are available for pre-order now!
Over the next few years we’ll be phasing out all our fabrics with 100% recycled upgrades and exploring new ways to reduce our packaging and minimize our carbon footprint.
United in the pursuit to reduce ecological harm.
Two Wheel Gear designs and builds products that empowers people to use their bicycles more and their vehicles less. At the same time, we recognize that making any product will impact the environment and the health of our planet. We endlessly seek out new materials and methods to further reduce our impact both locally and globally.
Two Wheel Gear’s entire product line makes cycling, walking and mass transit more practical for everyone, which makes a meaningful impact already, but to make sure we never lose sight of our mission, we’re making our commitment known with the following commitments to ourselves and our community:
Before the end of 2022 we will be using all Bluesign® approved mills for our fabrics. We already work to use recycled and/or natural materials as much as possible. By 2025 we plan to make 100% of our bags from recycled or natural fabrics.
Our current hang-tags and header cards utilize recycled content. The poly-bags that we package the products in for shipping are all compost-able. Our goal is to continue to push to find ways to avoid poly-bags and other single-use plastics throughout our supply chain.
There is no doubt that moving product around the world is a large part of the environmental impact of any brand. We try to use ocean shipping as much as possible and consolidate our shipments to as few vessels as possible.
End of Life
Our bags are designed and built to last and should serve for years if not decades. We work with our vendors and customers to repair broken parts as much as possible without scrapping whole bags. The reality is that eventually, all products wear out. We provide discount codes to customers that returned old bags that have reached the end of their life. We deconstruct our end of life products and recycle or re-use as much material as possible.
