    1% for the Planet Nonprofits

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Help us decide how to allocate our 1% for the Planet dollars in 2010. Choose from among the organizations we've already selected, or let us know which organization you'd like us to support by leaving a comment on the poll.

    ###

    Team Estrogen is proud to be a member of 1% for the Planet. We pledge to donate 1% of our sales (not just profits!) to environmental nonprofits.

    1% for the Planet is helping to tilt the scales of giving toward the thousands of under-funded nonprofits dedicated to the pursuit of sustainability and to preserving and restoring our natural environment.

    We want you to be a participant in this process. To support that goal, we've implemented a feature whereby you can select where you'd like 1% of YOUR purchase to go.

    How does it work? You'll find a form on our receipt page after checkout that will allow you to choose from the list of organizations we support.

    Thousands of nonprofits participate in 1% FTP, so we've culled the list down to a couple of dozen representing some of our favorites, along with a selection of regional, national and international organizations with broad appeal and a focus on issues of importance to cyclists and outdoor sports enthusiasts.

    If you don't see your favorite organization on the list, let us know -- if it proves to be a popular choice, we'll add it to our list of supported nonprofits.

    You can read more about and find links to each of the listed nonprofits, here:

    That is really wonderful--thank you.
    "My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure." O. Sacks

    Since we're "Team Estrogen," what about something a little more woman-oriented? Anyone have any suggestions? I was going to suggest the Green Belt Movement, but their financials don't look too great.

    Oak - 1% recipients are environmentally-focused organizations. I'm not aware of any that focus on the environment *via women*, but if you can find one that a) exists and b) is part of the 1%FTP movement, please let me know!

    The Breast Cancer Fund? They're on 1%FTP and three-star rated by Charity Navigator - could be better, but definitely acceptable in my book.
