Fighting Foodwaste

Diego picks up the unsold bread a few times a week with our e-cargo bike at Rise Bakery on the Albert Cuyp. He brings the bread to the walk-in house Makom for the meals at the end of the day.

The friday delivery

In april 2020, the Cargoroo team helped with 5 cargo bikes in Amsterdam to deliver part of the 5,000 kilos of fruit & vegetables to families in Amsterdam West.

After a welcome and explanation by Abdelhamid Idrissi we set off. A special thanks to Dana for choosing the smart cycling routes! Excess food from local farmers has been taken directly to poor families. Farming for Neighbors!

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Studiezalen Amsterdam organized all volunteers who make packages and compiled address lists. Fruit and vegetables through the FlevoFood Association and from Zonneheerdt, Polderpotato and Fruithal Smits from Flevoland. The transport was in the hands of Motion Transport, Cargoroo and Uber.

Port of Amsterdam via Oram provided a warehouse and Amsterdam Economic Board and Jacqueline van De Sande & Beaumont Communicatie helped with organization and communication. Thanks to Rabobank Amsterdam ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

The e-cargo bike changed my life

Jelleโ€™s Story

Two years ago we bought an electric cargo bike ourselves. A hefty investment, but perhaps our best ever: it changed our lives. Car use became increasingly frustrating, while the need for those trips remained. But now we could easily reach all corners of the city and we no longer did the shopping every day, but every week. And we lent the e-cargo bike more and more out, even to entrepreneurs. So a plan settled in our heads that would never go away. And led to Cargoroo…

โ€œI even took my wife to the hospital for the delivery of our sonโ€
