Aside from building great bikes, we are also passionate about supporting organizations that make a difference in the lives of others. Especially when it comes to cycling. We support numerous non-profit organizations and other businesses in Steamboat Springs and beyond. Here are a few of them.
In addition to supporting numerous advocacy organizations, we try hard to make sure we are operating our business responsibly. Among the many things we practice as a matter of day-to-day business are: Recycling: We recycle 100% of our part-offs and material waste as well as all paper, plastics and cardboards. In recognition of our responsible business practices, the City of Steamboat Springs has awarded Moots with the Gold Certificate for Corporate Stewardship.
Volunteerism: Moots employees contribute a significant amount of time each year to volunteer for various community support programs and cycling-associated advocacy efforts. We feel it’s important to give the extra effort to make our local community a better place for all residents and visitors, alike.
Commuting Program: Every Moots employee receives $1 for each day he/she commutes round-trip to the factory. At year’s end, each has the opportunity to distribute the money they’ve accumulated to a charity of the team’s choice.
Employee Co-Op Garden: Corn, carrots, radishes, lettuce – it’s all growing in the Moots garden on the south side of the factory. All harvests are split between those folks who have consistently cultivated the garden throughout the growing season.
Alternative Energy: The Moots factory is outfitted with Solar panels on the roof in effort to cut back our reliance on the grid. They provide about 10-14% of our monthly consumption.
