TGO selected as Kevin McCloud’s Green Heroes (again!)

Awarded as Kevin McCloud’s Green Heroes again

Every year Kevin McCloud’s Green Heroes celebrate the best conceptual and eco-friendly construction ideas. Kevin personally selects his top heroes for each show, from small-scale start-ups to big businesses setting a green example for the rest of the industry.

The Great Outdoor Gym Company (TGO) are proud to be selected as one of Kevin's all time favourite Green Heroes. Originally gaining the award in 2013 for TGO's green energy products.

Kevin McCloud said "In my gym I want to feel that cycling at speed going nowhere is not pointless. I want to share the eddort and the sweat in the great outdoors and feel part of a wider community. So I think I'll join an Outdoor Gym (formerly known as a bicycle but now reincarnated as a full-body workout coming to a roundabout near you). It generated wellbeing, friendships and electricity all in one".

You can see the Power Smart Range and the other Green Heroes awarded here on the Grand Designs Live website ->

Co-Founder and Joint Managing Director Georgie Delaney and TGO Designer Billa got to visit this years event and see the Power Smart Hand Bike display. TGO’s power smart range generates electricity from your workout converting your effort int usable watts for charging phones and even tying back to the grid. It even measures and captures data of how many times it is used and how much electricity has been generated. Find out more about our smart technology here.

Grand Designs Live was at the Excel London between the 1st and 8th May 2022 but it is on again at the NEC Birmingham between 5-9th October 2022.
