COMMON is a brand that is community designed, community owned, and community directed. It is a single open source brand – a living network – for rapidly prototyping many progressive businesses that unleash creativity to solve social problems.
During the summer of 2010, two Brooklyn cyclists brought bamboo bicycles to rural Alabama. Sean and Marty of the Bamboo Bike Studio in Brooklyn, NY brought down knowledge, tools and a contagious spirit of possibility. Their Alabamboo Bikes will be one of the first COMMON projects.
