Since 2010, Queen Anne–based water bottle company, Miir, has built nine wells that supply clean water to some of the 1 billion people worldwide who do not have access to it. Last September, spurred by a desire to benefit underserved people in other ways, Miir CEO Bryan Papé added a line of bicycles to the inventory and partnered with World Bicycle Relief and the Boise Bicycle Project, organizations that provide sustainable transportation for at-risk populations in Boise and across Africa. Buy a Miir bike for yourself online ($699—$899) and the partners send a bike to someone who really needs one. “We don’t just give away a bike,” Papé explains. “The students and workers in these programs give back to their community, or commit to their education before they get the bike. That kind of ownership leads to sustainable change.” miir.com
