Who are PIXXA?
PIXXA is an italian pizza restaurant based on Whitechapel high street in Tower Hamlets.
Why did PIXXA get involved with the Zero Emissions Network?
PIXXA approached the Zero Emissions Network to see if they could cut their emissions when delivering pizza. It was recommended that the company take on a free two week cargo bike trial to see whether pizza deliveries by bike would be feasible for their business. It is stimated that 140g of C02 is saved per mile travelled in cargo bike, compared to a moped.
How did it benefit the business?
PIXXA found that the cargo bike enabled them to navigate traffic efficiently and timeously, ensuring the pizza is hot when it arrives. PIXXA also found that the cargo bike saved money on fuel bills and that the deliveries generated zero emissions which was a great way for them to promote their sustainable credentials. After the trial, PIXXA applied for a grant to help them purchase a brand new custom made cargo bike.
"As a ZEN member we were able to work with London Green Cycles to design a cargo bike that exactly matched the requirements of our business and negotiate the best price. We now use it for all our local deliveries." Simone, Owner, PIXXA
