Maya Pedal Asociaci贸n

Waschmaschine & Recycling einmal anders…. 馃槈

„In 1997, in San Andr茅s Itzapa in Guatemala, Maya Pedal Asociaci贸n began recycling scraps of bicycles into Bicim谩quinas.

Bicim谩quinas are pedal-powered blenders, washing machines and threshing machines, eliminating the need for fuel and electricity. Pumps are also possible, and are capable of extracting 30 liters of water per minute from 30-meter deep wells (electronic pumps reach just to 12 meters).
