Founded in Chicago in 1950, the original GOOD DESIGN program remains one of the oldest and most important ecological awards programs worldwide.
We’re so proud to have been awarded the Green GOOD DESIGN® Award, as it “identifies and emphasizes the world’s most important examples of sustainable design” with a focus on companies who “are doing the best job of ecological and sustainable design for our world environments.”
Micro renewed its longstanding commitment to sustainability with the ECO Collection, taking our history of keeping scooters out of landfills, and creating a more proactive approach to waste management.
The ECO Collection harnesses the power of “green plastics,” a plastic material made from other recycled material. In this case, Micro uses recycled ocean plastic to create parts for our ECO Collection.
The maritime industry leaves behind nets, trawls, and other materials in the ocean, in turn negatively affecting the seas’ ecosystem. We gather up, recycle, and reuse those items and turn them into our best-selling products.
While we consider this mission a part of our responsibility as a company, we couldn’t be more thrilled to be awarded by Green GOOD DESIGN® and join the ranks of the other inspiring businesses making a difference for the planet.
