Simple SAM Bicycles is yet another company adopting what is essentially a simple model with a huge impact: For every four units sold, one will be given away to a person in Africa. American footwear company TOMS may have popularized the movement, but others are now recognizing that people are looking to consume with a conscious.
By providing a relatively easy give-back program -- at least on behalf of the consumer -- Simple SAM Bicycles allows just that and more. It doesn't hurt that the designs it offers are incredibly stylish. Young urbanites will appreciate the minimalist aesthetic that is currently available in eight different colorways.
Designed in South Africa, the bicycles are made out of lightweight aluminum and available in single-speed and fixed gear options. It's currently on Kickstarter with a goal of $50,000.
