PTFE and Petrochemicals go into the environment via bicycles every year
PTFE and Petrochemicals go into the environment via bicycles every year. Green Oil seeks to stop this. With plant based biodegradable formulas. The original Green Oil chain lube was created after a ride through the river Quaggy near Elmstead Woods- and a failed search to find a petrochemical free lubricant. Simon created the Green Oil formula in his last year at University, and through testing in Lords Wood Southampton, it worked. Many big corporations use PTFE in their lubes. PTFE makes a carcinogen in its production, and does not biodegrade. PTFE lubes often misleadingly claim their formulas are biodegradable despite this. Green Oil UK Ltd makes the only genuinely green range of bicycle maintenance fluids. Green Oil has been a commercial partner of Friends of the Earth and our formulas work well. Green Oil chain lube gives in excess of 125 miles between applications. That's a performance beating many toxic chain lubes.
