Bikmo + 1% For The Planet

It’s quite a simple concept – give 1% of your annual revenues back to good causes focussed on the environment. As our business grows, so does our giving.

As a small and growing business, we only have so much time we can dedicate towards non-core business and 1% provide a superb framework covering giving and volunteering activities. With cycling having significant environmental and societal benefits (aside from just being generally awesome) there was already a great connection with many of the 1% community.

For the giving part of our 1% commitment, we have chosen to support organisations which represent both local cycling communities and developing countries.

World Bicycle Relief

We chose to work with World Bicycle Relief with their simple concept of ‘changing lives with bicycles’ and it being clear with each bicycle costing (at the time of writing) €134 to deliver, just how much impact we were having.

They also don’t just drop bikes and leave but support local communities by training individuals in the repair of the bikes, keeping their communities riding.

Trash Free Trails

We chose to work with TFT after seeing how they approach activism in a collaborative way, it’s a great way for us to become even more active in our local communities, and we can help support local trails and environments through the removal of singe use pollution (aka – litter).

Their founder, Dom, has a track record of success in environmental activism through Surfers Against Sewage and although originating from a trail riding background, their remit extends to all trail users on foot, bike, horse or llama.
