This collaboration is part of our effort to grow the Flowfold Way — our path to sustainability and community action.
As a global leader in the organization and funding of non-profits that protect the environment, our partnership with 1% for the Planet is the highlight of our year. We’re excited to grow our commitment to sustainability — which includes using 40% reclaimed materials, manufacturing 100% of our products in the USA, and getting active in our own community.
To start, we’ve chosen to support three specific non-profit partners of 1% for the Planet.
The Little Bellas is a mountain biking organization with the goal of helping young women realize their potential through cycling. They aim to create a community that will empower girls through the sport, emphasize the importance of goal-setting, promote healthy lifestyles and recognize the positive effects of strong female bonds. While this program is centered around creating camaraderie for girls on bikes, it is most importantly about having fun in a constructive environment.
Donations to Little Bellas go to scholarship funds, supplying bikes, and growing their programs nationwide. Little Bellas has helped get over 2,700 girls on bikes to date, but they need your help to keep pedaling.
American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and an annual America’s Most Endangered Rivers® campaign.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, American Rivers has offices across the country and more than 275,000 members, supporters, and volunteers.
350.org uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, take money out of the companies that are heating up the planet, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all.
350.org believes in a safe climate and a better future — a just, prosperous, and equitable world built with the power of ordinary people.
What does 1% for the Planet do?
Their mission, as described on the 1% for the Planet website, is simple:
“We collaborate with individual and business members to identify environmental organizations that will make the greatest impact and align with your giving goals. We certify that every dollar contributed goes to a vetted, trusted nonprofit. Our members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to the environment, and our nonprofit partners are doing the hard work of restoring our planet for the future. Our goal is to significantly increase the overall amount of global dollars going to help protect the planet with the smartest donations possible.”
