Zero Waste Scotland 190pxResearch by ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland shows that if all bikes in the country were purchased second-hand, it would save a total of 23,400 tonnes of carbon emissions, which is the equivalent of taking 12,000 cars off the road for one year.

Over 5000 bicycles were bought in the ten Revolve certified second-hand stores across Scotland over 2019 and 2020, contributing to a carbon saving of over 600 tonnes. The saving, which is compared to buying new, is the equivalent of taking 321 cars off the road for a year. The bikes are checked and, where required, refurbished in line with high quality and safety standards before going on the shop floor.
