Maya Pedal Asociación

Waschmaschine & Recycling einmal anders…. 😉

„In 1997, in San Andrés Itzapa in Guatemala, Maya Pedal Asociación began recycling scraps of bicycles into Bicimáquinas.

Bicimáquinas 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).
