That can be seen in the case of one of the most eco-friendly parts of sharing economy – the bike-sharing. Although the most eco-friendly places in the world (Denmark, Germany, Netherlands) have more than 70% cyclist out of the entire population, many countries still think that bike sharing services are important. Maybe the main reason for this lies in the fact that we are not sure about the size of the impact that bike sharing has on a climate change. Well, let’s take a look what every turn of the pedal brings.
