Champagne Lasseaux is a Champagne company based in Hackney that delivers all over London. They were interested in making their company more sustainable by switching their delivery car for a cargo bike and were able to do so through the ZEN grant scheme. Nearly all deliveries are now undertaken by cargo bike. By match funding the ZEN grant, Champagne Lasseaux were able to purchase a larger, electrically assisted cargo bike that is capable of carrying up to 100 bottles of champagne. This has reduced the cost of delivering as there’s no fuel to pay for, no congestion charge and no parking tickets! Not only this but their customers love to see that their champagne is being delivered emissions free!
"The ZEN grant helped me purchase a cargo delivery bike with electric assistance, which has greatly reduced my reliance on car deliveries. I can fit up to 100 bottles in the weatherproof case and I have not paid congestion charge or received parking tickets since I started using it. Less pollution, less congestion, more exercise and more client interaction when they see Champagne being delivered on a bicycle. Thank you ZEN!"
