Sample article from our Bioeconomy

January 26, 2022 (press release) –

MONDRAKER HAS LONG BELIEVED IN WORKING TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD. INDUSTRY AND COMMERCE MUST LEAD THE WAY AND COMMIT TO TAKE STEPS AND WORK TOWARDS RAISING AWARENESS AND CREATING A BETTER, LESS POLLUTED WORLD FOR US ALL. THEREFORE, FROM NOW ON, ALL MONDRAKER BIKES WILL BE SHIPPED, PACKAGED IN A 100% RECYCLABLE BOX, CUSTOM DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED EXCLUSIVELY TO CUT WASTE.

Environmental issues and images are constantly highlighted to us in the news and fill our social media feeds daily. As a manufacturer, we know there are positive steps and changes we can make to help lessen our impact on the world. In this regard, here at Mondraker, we have been making a concerted effort over the last few years to become more sustainable and environmentally aware.  To take steps toward this goal and to further play our part, for the 2022 season and beyond,  all packaging used on our new bicycles will be 100% plastic-free and 100% recyclable. No zip-ties, plastic or foam will be found in the boxes, and everything can be easily recycled locally by dealers.  

The new boxes have been designed from the ground-up, in-house at Mondraker, to be easily recycled by the end user. All external and internal protective elements have been custom-made to save landfill waste.  It has taken a lot of time and effort along with multiple prototypes to design the perfect solution. The effort, however, has been worthwhile and we can now say that as well as making the best bikes in the world, we also make the best boxes too. 

100% RECYCLABLE PACKAGING

Along with no plastic packaging, zip-ties, or foam inside the boxes, all adhesive tape used is made from rice, the security seal on the box is made using potato pulp and the adhesives are organic. The boxes also include 2 reusable Velcro straps, so the packaging is recyclable and reusable. Outside the box organic, biodegradable ink is used as well.  

One of the key design parameters of the new boxes, as well as using only 100% recyclable materials, was that the bike should be at least as well protected as in the past, but the result of the new packaging is that the contents are actually better protected than ever before. We’ve even reduced the boxes overall volume when compared to the old ones too, which saves on shipping space and assembly times can be reduced by the end user thanks to the new internal layout inside the box. 

SUSTAINABLE, ECO-FRIENDLY AND BIODEGRADABLE

At Mondraker, we believe that it makes perfect sense for us to mirror the e-vehicle we create and that we should generate the least waste possible from its manufacture, all the way through to the end user. Therefore, we are committed and ethically obliged to generate the least possible pollution in all phases of production from start to finish. We know this isn’t the whole solution but it is certainly a progressive step towards a goal.
