Shared Earth UK is a leading supplier of Fair Trade, eco-friendly, ethical and recycled/re-made products.  Shared Earth works to ensure that the artisans who make the products get a fair wage, there is no exploitation (for instance of children), women are treated equally, and the community and those most in need of work benefit from our trade.

Bicycle made from recycled tin cans, with moving wheels and steering, and kickstand. This type of modelling is known as Kapoaka, each piece is completely unique due to the nature of materials used.  Colours will vary.

Each figure is hand-made using old drinks, beer, air freshener cans etc. Each piece of material is hand folded, cut and soldered together to create a magical bike.

THIS IS NOT A TOY. Not suitable for children due to small parts and sharp edges.

These models are all hand-made from recycled tin cans by a co-operative in Madagascar that has been in operation since 1994. They provide Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans.
