Pedalling towards a more sustainable future this Earth Day

Pedalling towards a more sustainable future this Earth Day

Earth Day holds profound significance as a global call to action for sustainable efforts, and environmental awareness. The day honours the achievements of environmental movements and underscores the urgency of preserving Earth's natural resources for future generations. This day inspires individuals worldwide to effect positive change, paving the path toward a more sustainable future. You may be wondering how you can make a difference? If you already have an e-bike you're one step ahead!


How an e-bike contributes to a more sustainable future

E-bikes, powered by electricity, offer a sustainable alternative to conventional transportation methods which are reliant on fossil fuels. By avoiding carbon emissions during travel, e-bikes offer a much more environmentally friendly alternative to cars or buses. Their eco-conscious design aligns with the ethos of Earth Day, promoting greener, more sustainable modes of transportation.


Earth Day activities

In the spirit of Earth Day, we're embracing sustainable activities to really amplify the positive environmental affect. You may even want to sandwich a few together to create a sustainable itinerary!

1. Explore your surroundings: Embark on an adventure through urban landscapes or natural settings with your e-bike, immersing yourself in the beauty of your surroundings. Maybe cycle with family or friends to the starting point for a hike and the chance to take in some wonderful views!

2. Discover a farmers' market: Buying fresh produce from a local farmers' market is a surefire way to avoid needless plastic packaging and drive down food miles, helping to reduce landfill contributions and CO2 emissions. Instead of a paper bag, you can opt to bag your loose fruit and vegetables in more sustainable, reusable bags and containers, like a mesh vegetable bag, to enhance your sustainability. Farmers' markets are also perfect for bread and meats too, again ideal to store in reusable containers.

3. Zero waste picnic: Why not cycle to a picturesque location for an eco-friendly picnic, opting for reusable utensils, plates, and containers to minimise waste. Typically picnics produce a lot of waste with the prevalence of single-use plastics or packing, so by opting for reusable alternatives you're already taking steps to better the environment. You could even bring along produce purchased from your farmers' market trip to ensure a truly zero-waste experience!

4. Thrifting expedition: Did you know that 92 tonnes of garments end up in landfills every year? Don't worry, you can still sustainably update your wardrobe by thrifting. Ride to your nearest thrift store and mitigate the environmental impacts of fast fashion and textile waste. Second-hand shopping allows you to mindfully approach fashion consumption while living sustainably, and finding that unique jacket or T-shirt is sure to make your individuality shine!


Ongoing sustainability efforts

While Earth Day serves as a great time to reflect on environmental responsibility, sustainable practices extend beyond a single day. Continuous actions and commitment are imperative for long term environmental conservation. By incorporating eco-friendly habits into daily routines, such as opting for an e-bike commute or being more mindful with recycling, you can foster lasting positive sustainable change.


TENWAYS' commitment to sustainability

At TENWAYS, we are dedicated to sustainability. Through our partnership with Just One Tree, we plant 1 tree on your behalf for every e-bike delivered, contributing to reduced carbon emissions, and ensuring that each and every TENWAYS rider is helping to combat climate change. Last year we celebrated a triumphant 10,000 trees planted; these efforts have helped to reduce atmospheric CO2 by 3,000 tones!
