Be.e ($TBA) is an electric scooter made from hemp. That sounds really cool, but it is also extremely environmentally green. The Be.e’s body is made from hemp, flax and bio-resin. The use of this material and the manufacturing process cuts the scooters carbon footprint and eliminates a number of parts needed to construct a standard scooter. The Be.e’s electric motor can be driven for two hours or up to 60 km and can be fully charged in under three hours. The Dutch startup Van.eko will not be selling these but using a pay-per use solution that will allow riders to rent the Be.e by the week, or month. So the next time you’re in Holland schedule some time to take a spin on the Be.e.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
