Comments Off on Sman Cruisers’ Classic Wooden Bikes Take to the Streets With Sustainable Style

With summer in full swing and temperatures soaring across the states , why not stay cool and reduce carbon emissions at the same time by taking to the streets on a wooden bicycle by Sman Cruisers ? The retro-styled beach bikes, developed by Dutch master woodworker Arnolt Van Der Sman, combine 1950s California surf culture with environmentally-friendly materials to inject classic form with contemporary eco-consciousness.  Read about what makes this cruiser sustainable after the jump. Most bicycles are made from aluminum, carbon fiber, steel, or titanium. These metals require significant amounts of energy to extract and mold, and their manufacturing results in the release of toxic byproducts . In the case of carbon fiber, in some ways it is more harmful than steel and recycling of the material is still in its infancy By contrast, all Sman Cruisers are constructed using ash and beech woods – renewable materials that, if produced by Forest Stewardship Council certified sources, present a much more sustainable alternative. So whether you plan on cruising the pier or peddling on over to a farmers’ market this summer, consider upgrading your wheels to a wooden bicycle by Sman Cruisers. + Sman Cruisers Via Blue Ant Studio Images: Stefan Warnar

Comments Off on The Simple Living Amish Are the Fastest Growing Community In the US

The Amish are best known for their simple living, their plain dress and their reluctance to adopt many of the technological luxuries we take for granted. In many regards, they are among the greenest and most sustainable communities in the US given their farming methods, their recycling of resources, their reliance on horse power and a prohibition on automobiles. However,  a new report from Ohio State University on the Amish population in the US has found that a new Amish community is founded, on average, about every 3 1/2 weeks. This would suggest that the Amish are the most rapidly growing community (and religion) in the US!
