If you didn’t know this yet, here at Oblique we love everything Colorado, especially our North Boulder Community. As a company, we strive to make a difference where we can. This quarter we decided to reach from our roots and design a cycling jersey that represents our close-knit community and raises money for a local nonprofit, Boulder Food Rescue.
Boulder Food Rescue, founded in 2011, provides soon-to-expire and overstocked food from 28+ local businesses to 40+ recipient sites ranging from day shelters to community centers. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, Boulder Food Rescue has redirected almost two million pounds of good food from landfills to hungry bellies in the city of Boulder. They collect food up to fifteen times a day, everyday, relying only on buggies connected to bicycles.
As avid cyclists ourselves, we thought a cycling jersey to be a fitting way to support an organization that relies solely on bicycle transportation. Partnering with local businesses in North Boulder, we’ll market and sell the jerseys to other cyclists across Boulder. With 100% of sponsors proceeds and approximately 15% of sale proceeds we hope to provide Boulder Food Rescue with resources to keep their awesome project going.
Anything involving cycling and helping out the community means all hands on deck here at Oblique. (I mean just look at those designs!)
