Casa Verde: Put Your Bike to Work

If you're moving across country, probably the most eco-friendly way to handle the move is to sell your things on Craigslist, and then buy furnishings in your new town off of Craigslist or at thrift and antique stores once you've settled. If you're just moving across town, there's no reason to get rid of your stuff. But the earth-friendly answer isn't to rent a U-Haul, either. That hogs gas, and costs money! Instead, put your bike to work! San Francisco blogger, biker, and photographer SFWiggle recently moved, and decided to borrow a Bikes at Work Bike Trailer from the San Francisco Bike Coalition. As a member ($35/year), you can check out a trailer for free, which you can use to lug anything from your briefcase and groceries to your mattress or a sofa. Check with your local bike coalition to see if they offer a similar service! If not, Bikes at Work Trailers are available for purchase.

I would probably have some pretty major road rage if I were stuck behind someone trying to move their mattress on a bike!

this would never work in my city, to many speed bumps, to many cars, etc.

Yeah, I'm all for eco-friendly ideas but moving wears me out as it is...all that packing, unpacking, lifting, carrying and rearranging...I think I would just keel over if I added this idea!

I can just imagine riding down a hill and having to brake with a mattress in tow.. not a pretty site. Neither is the one where you have to peddle uphill with a sofa!
