How food or products are grown, made, produced or packaged. Whether you’re a business making products or a consumer choosing them, if you value sustainable practices, you’re already asking those important questions.
But what about how a product is delivered? Consider that most products are delivered with diesel trucks or vans that get poor mileage, cause climate and asthma-inducing pollution, endanger pedestrians and add to traffic congestion. Can't we do better than that?
That’s why we created Freewheel - to provide urban delivery entirely carbon free and to do it using bicycles instead of trucks. We’re passionate about our mission because we must do more to combat climate change and, here in Seattle, transportation is our biggest source of carbon emissions.
I love living in such an amazing city that leads the way on so many important issues. Together, we can change how delivery is done by adding ‘how did it get here’ to our core set of sustainability values.
