Taking his love for recycling and bicycles, Israeli designer Izhar Gafni has successful created a fully functional bicycle made from recycled cardboard.

He was inspired by a ‘cardboard canoe’, which he heard someone had built, and wanted to apply the same concept to his passion—cycling.

In an article by No Camels, it was reported that the production cost of Gafni’s cardboard bicycles was around USD$9 to $12 each, and he estimated that one could be sold to consumers for $60 to $90, depending on the components they choose to add.

According to Gafni, he said that his bicycles were cheap, sturdy and strong—capable of carrying a person weighing up to 300 pounds and they are also water and humidity resistant.
