The companies Buddha Bikes and Recycling repair used bicycles and help young people on the edge of society, at the same time. Topdanmark collaborates with these socially conscious bike-enthusiasts and donates several bicycles to this cause every year.
Buddha Bikes is a certified socio-economic company that was established in 2015, and the same year Topdanmark started working with the bicycle business. At the workshop in Copenhagen, the employees repair old bicycles, and sell them in in the very same shop. Moreover, Buddha Bikes has a social purpose. Among other things, they collaborate with the Askov Foundation by enabling vulnerable young people to take charge of their own lives.
The same applies to Recykling, which is based in Aarhus. Being able to receive bicycles from Topdanmark eases the eternal hunt for used bicycles, which can be repaired and sold again.
