Keep the wheel turning

We’ve been experimenting with recycling metal alloy in the last few days, so that even when we use non-sustainable materials such as this, we’re using them in a more sustainable way! These bicycle dropouts have been cast from an old VW alloy wheel. Follow our story on Twitter @NickAtBeamz.

Good news!

We are very pleased to announce that we have been selected to receive support from The Plunkett Foundation for our Community Interest project – Beamz: Giving unsustainable materials some stick!

Depression and mental illness are a growing problem in our society. We believe this could be alleviated by the growth of high wellbeing jobs and opportunities to work in beautiful, natural environments.
