Claire Mitchell and Danielle Krasniqi, two women from Tallahassee, FL, have created a business that could just be the pinnacle of green business. The recent article on Grist.com tells the story of how they met and got the business started. In short, they grow fresh produce on a vacant lot in the city and use bicycles to transport it to local restaurants. And the bikes they use are made by the same friend who owns one of the six restaurants they now transport to. What they have created is an entirely local, independently sustainable business with zero carbon footprint–and the freshest food.
Their business is one more example of how bicycles can be used to both cut down on carbon emissions and profit from the efficient transportation of bikes. The bikes they use are equipped with a large carrying basket that allows for a great amount of produce to be transported at one time. And the cost of doing so is next to nothing, especially when compared to that of a car and gas at its current prices. The business’s dedication to locality makes the use of bikes a no-brainer. Mitchell and Krasniqi’s business, known as Ten-Speed Greens, can certainly be seen as a gold-standard for local businesses.
