Caletti Cycles is a member of 1% For The Planet, a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet. This means we give at least 1% of our sales to nonprofit partners working to protect, preserve and restore the environment. This is important, maybe now more than ever.

As we are headed into tax time, I recently wrapped up our giving for this year. Recipients were:

Amazon Watch : Their mission is “to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and the preservation of the Amazon’s ecological systems.”

People For Bikes : a National bike advocacy group

Bike Santa Cruz County : our local bike advocacy group

Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz : our local mountain bike advocates and trail builders

Sea Shepherd : Ocean conservation, “the Whale’s Navy”

My next bike will have a finish design inspired by this boat!
