Go Green Trikes, LLCLansing, Michigan, United States

Go Green Trikes incorporated as an LLC in January and officially launched on Earth Day (April 22), 2014. We’re located in Lansing, Michigan and utilize heavy-duty, electric-assist tricycles that are capable of carrying up to 500-pound payloads as well as a collection of cargo bikes and trailers for specialized tasks like mobile advertising. These all provide a smart, local and green service for local businesses and residents.

Both our green vehicles and a triple bottom line help make us unique. We’re interested in profits, yes, but we also factor in people and the planet (volunteering with community and/or environmental groups) into our overall success equation. I love finding ways to involve/give back to the community through Go Green Trikes! We share a space with the Lansing Bike Coop and help with their events and also are stewards of a rain garden in downtown Lansing that helps filter storm water runoff. We’ve created a Random Acts of Community Kindness (RACK) program that funnels any tips/donations received to a fund that then offsets the delivery costs for non-profits, community events, or folks that might not otherwise be able to afford our services. We also work with a local time bank, exploring alternative ways to both provide and pay for our services.

We’re striving to grow sustainably and are expanding the fleet and bringing on additional contract help as needed in order to both offer more services to the community and to meet the growing demand.
