Green Your Bicycle: Accessorize Thoughtfully
Tip #2: Accessorize Thoughtfully
Every bike needs the bling to make the ride smoother and safer. Here are some ways to make your accessories eco-friendly:
- Instead of lubing your chain with petroleum-based grease, use a product derived from natural plant oils.
- Light up without batteries by investing in a solar-powered bicycle light, or convert a cheap garden lamp into one.
- Tote your groceries in a pannier made of recycled materials, or create one from a kitty-litter box.
- Unless you’re a hardcore racer, you don’t need the infamous spandex suit. Instead, rummage around for your favorite worn-in T-shirt and shorts.
