Our beautiful GreenHome bicycle and trailer are finally ready and the new GreenHome bicycle delivery service is officially up and running. Order GreenHome’s 100% biodegradable food packaging in and around the Mother City and feel secure that no carbon was released into the atmosphere to get it to you. Now that’s commitment to sustainability (well we think so.)
But while cargo cycling is a growing trend in other parts of the world, proposed new legislation wants to ban the use bicycle trailers in SA. What could our legislators possibly be thinking? Luckily it seems they weren’t, and now due to negative public response (including from us), they are.
“Now that we have seen people’s objections, and read their reasoning, we agree that we will have a significant impact on entrepreneurs and small businesses, and livelihoods of people, with this possible regulation. So we will be back at the drawing board,” said the source at the South African National Department of Transport.
Well that’s a relief!
