What is the environmental impact of e-scooter sharing?

We tend to think we're making the right move by using them. But are dockless electric scooters really that eco-friendly? 🤔

    How about alternative materials: bamboos and other sustainable materials? And scooter repair added to bike service shops?

    I walk everywhere. Luckily, the location of my house is good enough that i can walk to open air market in 7 minutes to do zero waste shopping, good enough that i can walk to work (35 minutes), good enough that im only 15 minutes away from 2 metro stations, good enough that it takes only 15-17 minutes to a super market ( though i use it hardly ever), good enough that i need 20 minutes to the hospital, my school was 10 minutes away and university was around 30 minutes of walk away. So, basically I love being on foot, transport free. I've only used bus 3 times in the past 18 months. So, doesn't matter where i live, will move i want to be surrounded by such walkable distance to most needed places within an area. Don't wanna use any transport but my bio power that is good for my body, and the environment and time saving

    Same with cellphone. The problem is the manufacturers are eager to sell new model all the time instead of having a product that last for a very long year. Most of these product nowadays are easy to break and will end up in trash. Its all about greed

    I have a crook leg and ride a push scooter. Fantastic for ones health, the environment and ones identity.

    Bah, check out the bicycle share waste in China. Don't tell me bicycles don't produce/require harmful chemicals (at the very least, they are powder painted).

    I think the arguments in this one are somewhat stretched..

    Add electric cars, solar panels, etc. Lithium is mined in the Congo by children too

    I love the ironny most people who want to be environmental concous live in cities which is the worst for the encouragement yet the people who love in rural areas are environmental concous just by living in rural areas
