Pouring oil into drains is not good for the environment, but have you ever stopped to think how much of the dirty oil on your bike gets into the watercourse from riding on wet roads, through rivers or simply from bike washing?

Green Oil has set about making a completely environmentally friendly bike oil. Its Ecological Chain Lube is recyclable and biodegradable in every way, from the oil itself to the packaging, and even the printed labels on the bottle.

It is made in the UK, and is suitable for all types of riding, costing £5.20 for 100ml with a thoughtful offer of a 50p discount on your next purchase if you take the old bottle back to be refilled at the shop.
