Cycle Sense makes it easier for people to cycle by sharing the many benefits of bikes from our reuse centre, where we carry out a range of activities from cycle training to advocacy, eco delivery, upcycling and upskilling.
We sell affordable secondhand bikes, paint and provide cycle trainers, bike maintenance, community cycle bus and training and upskilling opportunities. We divert paint from disposal & incineration to provide affordable good quality paint for reuse in the community through unique collaboration between Cork City and County Council. In addition to helping the environment, this has a positive economic impact through job creation and reduced costs for the community groups and individuals who use the paint.
CRNI is leading an EPA Green Enterprise project Circular Textiles, which will test the impact of three different separate collection systems for textiles and explore how we could manage the additional quantity of textiles that are collected. This project will be concluded in 2022.
