ZigZag Tea is a Tower Hamlets based company that supplies over 100 independent shops with ethically sourced tea made from sustainable ingredients. Zig Zag Tea was awarded a ZEN grant to help purchase a custom-made cargo bike for trading tea products at markets and events. The cargo bike has since allowed the company to travel more sustainably and become less reliant on taxis, private cars and public transport. Not only does the cargo bike look great but it also acts as an effective marketing tool for the company and keeps staff healthy!
"I heard about ZEN from a fellow start-up business called Black Box Coffee at a market we both attended. I wanted a cargo bike to help me with deliveries and for all my future events to be more sustainable. Having the cargo bike makes such an impression and I enjoy riding it around town" Lucy Dolan, Founder.
