The Philadelphia Pedal Cooperative

The Pedal Co-Op is a worker-run organization that offers environmentally friendly services to local businesses in Philadelphia such at recycling-by-bicycle. We currently use trailers that are attached to bicycles to transport compost to local gardens, recyclables to Blue Mountain Recycle (only single stream recycling center in Philadelphia), and the trash to the waste management facilities. The Pedal Co-Op’s aspiration is to diminish the caustic environmental impact that is threaded into the everyday modern life. We are dedicated to an ethical and sound business practice which promotes the fair and cooperative business ideology. Furthermore, we encourage the idea of a sustainable lifestyle.
