One Percent for the Planet

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.

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.

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.
