Despite the current lockdown the team at Eco Savvy are still keeping busy. They have just received four new eBikes for keyworkers on Arran and have organised a brilliant programme of online events for the coming weeks to help keep us connected with all things eco!
eBike fleet expansion!
2021’s savvy travel quest has had an electrifying start as four new eBikes join the existing Eco Savvy eBike fleet. The bikes supplied by Dales in Glasgow and funded by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), comprise of three compacts and one all-terrain bike, taking our fleet up to 15 bikes. The new eBikes will enable us to increase the number of eBikes available to key workers during the ongoing Covid crisis.
We are delighted to be expanding the fleet and hope to get the bikes out to key workers as soon as possible. We would like to encourage any key worker, whether you are working in health care, energy, transport, teaching, food provision or any other key job to get in contact and to see how eBikes work for you as an alternative, low-carbon way of getting about!
The bikes will be available for around 4 weeks at a time and are suitable for work or for leisure in accordance with Covid guidance. We appreciate that cycling is a brilliant way to relax for those in difficult jobs at this time as well as the perfect socially-distanced way to get to work.
Are you a key/essential worker who would be interested in a free loan of an ebike to get around?
Whether you are working in health care, energy, transport, teaching, food provision or any other key job get in touch and see how eBikes could work for you as an alternative, low-carbon way of getting about!

Eco Savvy workshops
We have 6 weeks of exciting food themed workshops and activities planned so check out the schedule below. The first week has been and gone but there is still lots more to come in February and March. If you want to get involved in some or all of the themed weeks then register your interest here.
And a message from Jess, Sustainable Food Cooridnator at Eco Savvy:
Last year I saved lots (1000s!) of Kale seeds that I grew successfully in Corrie. These were saved from the Red Ursa Kale variety from Real Seeds and did exceptionally well in our windy, coastal garden producing leaves from September through to May the following year. (They got tastier from March after surviving the winter!) I have packs of these to share with anyone who wants to take part in our workshops over the next six weeks and will be posting out packs in March with growing instructions included.
Just register your interest in the workshops here* and I’ll get a pack to you
*You need to attend at least one workshop/ event and complete a quick survey both before and after to qualify for a seed pack!
