This green company supplies zero emission electrically-assisted pedal bikes. Naomi founded the company in 2006 after coming across an electric moped in Thailand. The company also takes an active role in community projects. Recent initiatives organised by the social enterprise include a partnership with Camden Council Youth Service, where the Zipee team hosted education sessions for teenagers on the issues surrounding climate change. Naomi is also now planning a bike rental arm to the business as well as developing new green ways of powering the bikes.
