At Prevelo Bikes, we love planets. And while we appreciate Jupiter's size and Saturn's jazzy rings, by far our favorite planet is Earth. To be fair, we have yet to visit other planets. Still, we are firm in our belief that Earth is the best planet. As a member of 1% for the Planet, Prevelo Bikes contributes 1% of sales to issues facing our favorite planet (which is Earth, in case you weren't paying attention earlier).
1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to address the most pressing issues facing our planet. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, the members have given more than $150 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, numerous individuals, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries.
If you are a business owner, please consider taking the pledge and joining this group. Let's teach our kids to ride bikes. Then let's make sure they always have an awesome planet to ride them on.
