Object find: cycling and recycling

Object find: cycling and recycling

It's wheely bad to fall off your bike and not get straight back on it. You should always recycle. 

Okay, terrible pun, but it leads nicely into today's object find, the Wishbone Bike Recycled Edition, which grows with your kids as they do and is made out of pre-used nylon carpet.

That's two ticks for being eco-friendly, in a design that's 3-in-1 – a tricycle that turns into a two-wheeler and, with a flip of the frame, extends into a bigger bike for when the kids are a little older. 

It's also a finalist in the Best Design Awards. For all the finalists, see bestawards.co.nz.
