Every year tens of millions of inner tubes go straight into landfill in the UK. Unlike the car industries regulations on tyre recycling, the bicycle trade has no such policy, and waste tyres and tubes go in the bin. We are delighted to be working with Cycle Of Good who are accepting used tubes to fulfill their mission of saving every single inner tube in the UK from going to landfill. All of the Julian House Bike Workshops will be sending used tubes to Cycle Of Good and we encourage all of our customers to do the same, for the cost of a stamp, you can send your old tubes to them at:
The old inner tubes are then sent to Malawi where they are turned into quality handcrafted goods.
Cycle for good train tailors in the world’s poorest places so they can earn a decent living and support their families. All the money we make pays for childcare and non-profit social enterprise in Malawi.
That’s why it’s called the Cycle of Good!
