Cardboard Bicycle Bicicleta papeleria
This nine-dollar bicycle may be all we’ve ever needed to get inspired and change our lifestyles. It might be the hidden ticket to winning the environmentally friendly jackpot. With almost all components made entirely out of cardboard, this bike can be easily recycled. The cardboard may already be on its second life thanks to savvy recyclers in a previous life. As images of nature suggest depleting resources and dwindling forests, prairies and glaciers, images of this bicycle evoke forgiveness of nature. This bicycle promotes an image and implied understanding that if we each ride this recycled, cardboard icon, we potentially could reverse our damaging effect on nature. Although in actuality, riding this bicycle might not produce enough change to mitigate the damage we as a human population have already caused.
