Do your bit to protect the environment and look cool doing it.

For a dose of la dolce vita, try Vespa’s chic electric scooter, or channel your inner artist with an Andy Warhol inspired skate board, and yes, you need this swanky red bike to carrying groceries home.

UNAGI THE MODEL ONE

Looking for a sleek, eco-friendly ride to zip around town? The Model One by Unagi is the answer you’ve been looking for. This foldable scooter has a streamlined design (it hides its motor in the wheel) and comes in four colors. Go for Sea Salt to really standout. The E250 Single Motor is recommended for flat terrain while the E450 Dual Motor can tackle 15 degree inclines. $840-$990, unagiscooters.com

ANDY WARHOL BANANA SKATEBOARD

Let Warhol’s peel and stick banana — first created for the Velvet Underground’s iconic album — take you on a ride. OK, so maybe these boards aren’t really meant for riding since they come with a wall mount, but they sure are sweet. The Skateroom uses a portion of profits to fund social projects. $220, theskateroom.com

MARTONE CYCLING GRAMERCY

When he was younger, Lorenzo Martone loved bikes. After studying in Paris and living in different cities around the globe, he combined his passions, “biking, design, fashion and art,” creating Martone Cycling Co. Only 200 sleek Gramercy bikes are made each year. So far, 199 have been bought this year — although one currently stands in Martone’s shop in New York City, if you can’t wait for the 2020 rollout. $845, martonecycling.com

VESPA ELETTRICA

Vespa’s new eco friendly, battery powered, silent Elettrica scooter can go for about 60 miles between charges. The dashboard of the scooter connects to your cellphone via bluetooth so the driver can easily stay connected and control music while keeping their eyes on the road. $7,499, motoworkschicago.com

NIKE’S AIR MAX 90

Sneakers are all about color. Be sure to grab a classic throwback. We’re talking technicolor suede, so don’t forget your cassettes. Nike’s Air Max 90, the “Viotech 2.0,” are where it’s at. $140, notre-shop.com
