Rickshaw and Halo trip the light fantastic! One great idea begets another. As you may or may not know, Rickshaw is collaborating with another San Francisco-based start-up on a cool Kickstarter project called the Halo Zero LED Messenger Bag. The project is now live on Kickstarter, and funding is progressing nicely. The purpose of this post is twofold: (1) to encourage you and your friends to back our project, and (2) to tell you the story of how this project came to be, and why this may be the most exciting time in history to be an entrepreneur.

When I started Rickshaw, I was focused primarily on environmental sustainability — zero finished goods, zero waste, PVC-free, Cradle-To-Cradle — in a word, "green".
However, I've always felt a certain uneasiness with the whole "green thing". I watched as company after company made vague, hollow and sometimes downright false claims about their environmental friendliness. I struggled with my own entrepreneurial attempts to reconcile environmental sustainability, product quality and financial viability. And, I watched as consumers became increasingly confused, and ultimately desensitized, by all of this "greenwashing". In fact, it seems to me that the consumer products industry has acquired a bad case of "gangreen". This "browning of the green movement" has been compounded by the financial crisis that has engulfed the entire global economy.

Greetings from Long Beach -- the end of the line for my "TEDride2012". I covered 93 miles from Ventura to Long Beach today, making my 5-day total mileage for this trip 505 miles. This was my fourth "TEDride" -- which I have been doing each year since TED relocated from Monterey to Long Beach four years ago. This year I had perfect weather, no flat tires and no mechanical problems -- all good!
Rickshaw is a new San Francisco-based bag company. Inspired by the creative energy of our city, urban cycling and an intense desire to make great products, we started Rickshaw to satisfy our own personal passion for bags.
