1% For The Planet: The Boise Bicycle Project

In keeping with our mission to donate annually to the 1% For The Planet Foundation, we have selected the Boise Bicycle Project in Boise, Idaho as our 2012 recipient.  In their own words:

“Boise Bicycle Project (501c3) is a community-oriented effort to promote the personal, social, and environmental benefits of bicycling. It functions as a bicycle recycling center as well as an educational workspace in a diverse and non-threatening atmosphere. Through education and access to inexpensive bicycles we strive to build a stronger bicycling community.”

BBP is helping to put bicycles in the hands of kids and adults alike whom might not have had the chance to ride otherwise.  Their team includes over 3,000 volunteers and have recycled and reused over 5,000 bicycles, in addition to donating thousands of bikes to children in need.

OT’s commitment to cycling runs deep.  We are proud to support the Boise Bicycle Project in 2012 and beyond.
