Cycle 4 Recycle
In June 2015 Vyacheslav Stoyanov and Yana Melamed began a cycling expedition from Alaska to Argentina to explore how people view the culture of consumption in the Americas. This trip is creating a web of people all around the world who already are using the bicycle as a way of transportation and engaging more and more new people to start following their example, to begin sharing their activities and projects related to bicycle riding and recycling in their own country.
Cycling is a small step towards being healthy and moving around in an environmentally sound and inspiring way. The Cycle4Recycle Team believe that regardless of where you are, the important thing is how wide your eyes are open for life. Ultimately, great deeds are achieved by ordinary people.
“I’ve been traveling for almost seven years and have visited a lot of different countries in the world. I’ve seen luxury and misery. Nevertheless, the most uncomfortable thing for me was the low culture and consumerism, which are responsible for harming the nature and polluting our planet.” Slav (Vyacheslav Stoyanov)
“Cycle for Recycle” is the change we want to encourage in people with our personal example.
