In a path-breaking initiative, the igus-bike is the worldâ€™s first robust and durable fully-designed bicycle using recycled plastic. The bike uses plastic rim brakes ensuring maximum safety and is compatible with the common V-Break brake pads. â€˜Reguseâ€™ is another initiative we run, that turns electrical devices, like for example waste computers we use in our job, into functional devices for less demanding employees personal use. Besides, we have our tree planting projects, wherein we have planted over 9000 trees in India and over 30,300 trees globallyâ€.
