I get a real buzz from knowing that I contribute every day to reducing the use of raw materials. It makes me happy to produce something quite valuable with supposedly worthless material. It’s also quite satisfying when someone without any experience in bicycle mechanics moves on to a full-fledged job at Urban Arrow after our training program. We always see possibilities instead of limitations.

We have a big mission and we can't do it alone. We don't have all the answers either. Full circularity is very difficult to achieve and we don’t have solutions for everything yet. That’s why we also want to be an open space and inspire others. To achieve that circular and social future we all want and to improve a little more every day.
