Bike Scavengers


The number of shared bikes is tremendous, and the utility rate is low. Many of them have never been used and abandoned in streets and fields. Those over-produced bikes have stolen too much interest from us in terms of the urban environment, resource utilization, and sustainability, which will cause serious consequence. Hence, Bike Scavengers stands on the opposite of this terrible capital operation, intending to rescue people's living condition and stop the future of resource exhaustion and environment pollution. Not only that, scavenging also gains members quick rewards. Disassembled components could be instantly remade into aesthetic, functional products for personal use, which is respectful and trendy. As the food of us scavengers, the debris of shared bikes is predictably sufficient, and there is a bright prospect. Chinese shared-bike-fever has reached a saturation point while the heritage left by a group of flunked companies are intractable. By the end of June 2018, there have been about 20 million shared bikes thrown in streets by over 60 different shared bike companies. Most of the shared bike companies have been bankrupt, and the rest of them are still competing and manufacturing. It is estimated that there will be at least 10 million shared bikes (all brands in total) reaching their scrap age until 2020. It is going to occupy so much public space and land resources, besides at least 1.6 million tons of solid waste will be produced at the time. The wild growth of shared bike has led to a disturbing situation. By presenting how a bike-made product looks like does this give an opportunity to our users to be upcycling practitioners and to take social responsibility. Our products could not only be a functional commodity but also be a provocative piece reminding people how bike sharing affected us and in what way we could protect our living environment and future.
