“Walk with us” – that’s the motto of this year’s European Mobility Week, which takes place from 16-22 September. Focusing on safe walking and cycling, it draws attention to the benefits of keeping us active, not only for our health, but also for our environment and our bank balance!

Future of Mobility: IAA
It’s not only the European Mobility Week that pushes our focus towards mobility in September: starting September 12, this year’s IAA, the world’s largest motor show, takes place in Frankfurt am Main. It presents the newest and most innovative mobility solutions, such as this E-Bike from Volkswagen:
Metal Recycles Forever
Reasons enough for us to proclaim not only “Mobility Week”, but Mobility Month! Now, you might wonder why – what do cans and mobility have in common? Well, did you ever wonder what your bike is made of? Of course, its main material is metal! And since it’s endlessly recyclable, chances are that your bike (or parts of it) used to be a can. Crazy, right? The life of a can doesn’t end once its initial purpose is fulfilled. It gets recycled over and over again, saving resources and our environment (and one day it might end up as your bike). We cannot only provide you with information on recycling (even though it remains definitely one of our favourite topics). Your ecological footprint is not only defined by your recycling effort, but by so many other issues, such as mobility.
That’s why during September, we’ll give you an overview of sustainable mobility alternatives and – spoiler alert – you’ll have the chance to win one of four cantastic bikes! Follow this blog or our Facebook page if you don´t want to miss out on our updates!
