Anyway, Rory Woods of sustainablog just shared this video recently and I thought I’d do a quick re-share here.
“Portland’s B-Line, a sustainable urban transportation service established in 2009, interrupts food destined for the landfill and delivers it to organizations who feed the needy,” Rory writes. “The ‘B-shares’ program uses 600-pound capacity(!), electric-assisted cargo trikes to collects food from retailers and farmers’ markets and fills in the “last mile” of tricky urban logistics.”
Check out a video on the program below, and read more about the clear benefits of such a program, including more no the benefits of bicycling, on sustainablog: Portland’s Hungry Get Food Deliveries by Cargo Trikes.
This post is a quickie, a way for us to share more news with you by quickly covering good stories on other sites.
