We’re Re-Cyclists!

Soanes (Re)Cycles

Over the last 3 years we’ve made an aim (and stuck to it) to not purchase any packaging which we use for our online sales.

We re-use nearly all of the boxes we get (large and small), which you’ll notice when the item you bought from us turns up in a Boots or Wiggle box. If we can’t use them they’re normally used by one of our customers for sending their bike, use in gardening or by local schools for crafts.

This helps us reduce waste and at the same time stops us increasing waste! We also re-use air bubbles, bubble wrap, plastic bags, packing peanuts, brown paper and inner tubes too where possible (they make great elastic bands!).

Part Exchange & Used Bikes

About to take your old bike to the dump? Why not bring it in and see how much you could get for it against a shiny new bike!

Save yourself some money whilst we refurbish your old bike and stop it going to landfill.

We also stock a range of fully refurbished used bicycles.

Our Websites Green Too!

Krystal UK

We use Krystal as our web host provider which was one of the first UK hosts to be powered by 100% renewable energy (PUE rating of 1.12) and pride themselves on being as green as possible!

They’ve also teamed up with Trees for Life & Ecologi and planted over 1,000,000 trees already!

We Plant Tree’s!

In 2021 we teamed up with Ecologi to plant 1 tree for every order over £5.00 via our website. This is a great way of giving back and letting our customers help us help the planet!

Once you place an order over the value of £5.00 you’ll receive an email with a link to your dedicated tree as funded through your order.

Muc Off Cares!

From 2019 onwards we made the decision to only stock Muc-Off branded cleaning and lubrication products which brings with it their range of Bio Degradable – Eco Friendly products.

Aside from using better, more environmentally friendly ingredients or recyclable packaging, they’ve also been working on new ways to reduce waste packaging.

Introducing the New Muc-Off ECO Refill Station – You can now bring in your old Muc-Off Bike Cleaner bottles in to have them re-filled at the discounted price of £3.99 per litre. Save money and save the environment!

This is part of their Project Green campaign to save 30 tons of plastic by 2023.
