1% For The Planet

1% for the Planet was created in 2002 by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and Blue Ribbon Flies founder Graig Matthews.

Members donate 1% of their annual sales to environmental non profits. This means that every time you shop with Ryde you are automatically supporting people that are working tirelessly to create a healthier planet.

"The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organisations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the worlds problems.” - Yvon Chouinard

Pay it Forward

We recently created KYND, a dedicated email where you can write in and nominate people in your life who you feel have gone above and beyond for someone else or are generally all round great people. 

We continue to review these on a monthly basis and send out free gift packages where we can, to spread some joy. 

To find out more please email kynd@ryde.store. 

However, there is so much more we want to do with this.

In current climates, we've also decided to create a 'pay it forward' option at checkout. This means you can donate a % of your order total, to the next person. If and when you can. It also means you may benefit from somebody paying it forward! 

Close The Loop

Good things don't come to those who waste. 

It's a grim statistic but only 1-2% of clothing is recycled — the rest is tossed into landfills, downcycled, or burned. Fast fashion is a buzz kill and something we ran away from at lightening speed when we were designing our range.  

At Ryde we’re breathing new life into old gear – cutting down unnecessary waste and extending the life and closing the loop. 

Trade in your old outerwear for credit to spend at Ryde

Our clothes are designed to last, but wear and tear can take its toll. When you’re finished with your Ryde coats, send them to us to be reused, repurposed and recycled at one of our supporting partners. You’ll get £15 store credit, avoid creating more waste on the planet, and help us close the loop. Happy days. 

Whilst we are not perfect, we are constantly learning and trying our best to fully close the loop. We're starting slow so that we get this right. Currently we're only accepting trade ins on certain items, - with the first being outerwear but we'll be extending the scheme to our full range as soon as we're able to.  

Better for the planet and your purse

To send in your old gear please email us at hello@ryde.store with the subject line 'Closing the Loop.' We will then send you a shipping label or offer local collection. When your product has reached our depot, we will issue you with a gift card via email. Please note: we are unable to process items that do not comply with the rules detailed below:
