As a certified B-Corp, Dogeared is always keeping a pulse on really cool ways to serve our local communities and make a difference. We are believers of a healthy and sustainable future, not just for business, but for our planet. So it was no surprise when our co-founder and avid road cyclist, Merlin, jumped on the opportunity to support the Climate Ride. This 6-day, 327 mile journey is an amazing movement that encourages a healthy lifestyle and fitness while promoting a movement towards a more eco-friendly environment for the future. Now that is something we can get on board with!!
Each cyclist raises funds months prior to the event to help fund the organization’s movements towards sustainable and clean energy. Merlin ended up raising over $4,500 this year! Over $450,000 was raised for Climate Ride and its beneficiaries on this particular ride. Funds support sustainable endeavors that range from protected bike lanes to environmentally-friendly legislation, from saving our forests to furthering the cause of socially responsible business via B Lab and others.
