On The Move Organics is motivated by sustainable transportation as well as produce. We are proud to offer bicycle-delivery of our Standard Local and Custom Local Boxes. Many of you have no doubt seen our custom-built bike riding the streets of London, stacked high with delivery boxes. The bike, designed and built using 80% reclaimed materials by Jensen Didulo of Little Magic Cycles, is the longest cargo bike in North America! Since we initiated our bicycle delivery program in the spring of 2009, we have expanded to cover an 18 square kilometre delivery area 8-9months of the year.
Our converted mini bus moves throughout the rest of London two days a week. Often, it will be covered in evidence (dust and dirt) of our weekly journies to our local farms. We have chosen this diesel vehicle in the hopes of initiating our bio-diesel co-operative program in 2012. (While the bio-diesel project did not materialize, we have initiated a new exciting project that will hopefully launch in the fall of 2015!) Stay tuned to learn more about the R.E.A.C.T. (renewable electric assist cargo tricycle).
