Don’t take it wrong, carbon indeed has its merits, but the recent carbon craze seems to be heavily tied to bandwagon mentality; whatever the pros are doing is what the masses want to do too.

It was true in the ‘70s with drilled-out components, in the ‘80s with copious amounts of hair gel and Briko shades, in the ‘90s with those horrific lycra shorts designed to look like blue jeans, and today with carbon racing bikes. A frame and fork weighs less than a six-pack of brew, they’ve got terrific road damping capabilities, are stiffer than an I-beam – at least initially – and most importantly, carbon fiber has an indisputable cool factor.

Kurt Gensheimer thinks the bicycle is man’s most perfect invention.

In 622 God gave them the command to migrate from Mecca to the city of Medina, some 260 miles to the north, which marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.

Shortly before Muhammad died, at the age of 63, the majority of the Arabian Peninsula had become Muslim.

The renewable crop traps CO₂ as it grows, which is then stored in the plastic.

This lowers our carbon footprint and helps reduce climate change.

A straightforward but startling inference from these AMS data is that all but the very youngest fossil material in the geological record was buried contemporaneously only thousands of years ago in what must have been a major global cataclysm.

The simultaneous destruction of so much life implies, however, that dramatically more total carbon (now in the form of coal, oil, and oil shale) had to be present in the earth’s biosphere prior to this cataclysmic event.

It’s also a real challenge for us here at ecostore: how to make our packaging safe, stylish and easy to use while also being sustainable.

We’ve always opted for the best options available to us – even when that’s meant making difficult choices like using plastic.

This natural process reduces our carbon footprint and helps reduce climate change – and the packs are 100% recyclable.

Plastic packaging is one of the world’s big problems, filling up landfills and polluting oceans.
