Working Bikes Cooperative is a non-profit organization that recovers landfill-bound bicycles, repairs them to working condition, and sells them to Chicagoans at a low cost in order to fund shipments of bicycles and bike parts to developing countries. Their mission is to empower communities by engaging in activities that promote environmentalism, public heath, and human equality. By recycling bicycles locally and delivering them to communities in need at low cost, they are able to provide sustainable development within their partner communities.
