Now this guy is environmentally friendly. He is a gardener serving the west-side of Vancouver. He doesn’t use power tools and he travels between jobs on an electric assisted bicycle.
This guy is a gnome (metronomes.ca) – “Metro Gnome specializes in quiet and low emission residential garden maintenance services for the west-side of Vancouver, BC. We use electric bicycles and Modo pickup trucks to provide you with sustainable lawn and garden services.”
His “vehicle” was parked across the street from my house this evening when I returned from a 40 km ride after work. I have seen him before but was prompted to take a few pictures and share them.
We need more services like this in the community. I have seen an experimental farm at UBC that delivers fresh vegetables by bike and several other custom delivery services for small retailers and, of course, the bike courier companies. Anything we can do get get more cars and trucks off the roads is a good thing.
