Unicycling is a sport for individualists and adventurers who love the challenge of balance, the environment we ride in, and the idea that we can do more with less.
Kris Holm Unicycles produces equipment that lasts through years of long rides with minimal maintenance or upgrades. We recognize that our sport impacts the environment and commit to low-impact manufacturing methods and to supporting environmental conservation.
One Percent For The Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet. It’s about businesses recognizing that industry and ecology are inherently connected. It’s about realizing the positive effects of connecting businesses, consumers and nonprofits through philanthropy. And it’s about understanding that the true cost of doing business can be mitigated, as a starting point, by a simple pledge to the planet.
Kris Holm Unicycles is proud to have been the first Canadian company and the World's first cycling brand to commit 1% of sales to environmental conservation through One Percent For The Planet.
Watch Kris speak about his commitment to One Percent For The Planet and use unicycling as a metaphor for environmental sustainability in this 4 minute presentation filmed at Power Planet, the green gathering for green leaders, event in November 2012.
The David Suzuki Foundation provides science-based solutions to help solve our environmental crisis. They help individuals, especially youth, learn about our dependence on a healthy environment through applied research and education. Just like unicycling, finding environmental solutions requires persistence in the face of skepticism, and a realization that the "impossible" is often quite doable.
Kris Holm Unicycles is happy to support The David Suzuki Foundation in continuing its 20 year legacy of working to find environmental conservation solutions.
