Description:

We are ReFRAME, a social enterprise committed to promoting and empowering sustainable transport by developing commuter bikes made from recycled plastic. Our bikes will offset plastic which would otherwise go to landfill or incineration. This creates a bike with a smaller carbon footprint than many other bikes. We believe in providing the feeling of freedom through travel to the next generation of Ireland and incentivizing citizens to switch from the car seat to the saddle. We are also on a mission to bring Irish plastic waste into the Circular Economy all powered by our recycling workshop based in University College Cork, which is built upon the Precious Plastic Framework - an open-source, worldwide alternative recycling community. We believe in not only helping Ireland but also helping the Global South through our innovation and sustainability. ReFRAME is a part of UCC Enactus, a local branch of Enactus Ireland and Enactus Worldwide.
