Pedro’s were one of the first companies, if not the first, in the bike industry to base their corporate ethos and product design on protection of the environment. They began life offering lubes and citrus-based degreasers that were much less harmful than the competition.
What’s more, they work really well. The foaming action of the Green Fizz lifts away the dirt very effectively, while the reusable bottle has an effective adjustable nozzle capable of delivering a waste-free directional jet. It’s safe to use on carbon and untreated aluminium, and the 475ml bottle offers a concentrated recipe that can be stretched by diluting with water.
If you’re one to apply the ‘little and often’ philosophy to bike maintenance, you’ll probably be cleaning your bike at least once a week; that means washing soaps onto the ground and potentially into the food chain. With Green Fizz you can rest assured you won’t be damaging the worms or the birds that eat the worms.
