How do I pitch a new product idea (bike seat cover kit) to REI?

Hi Everyone,

If you are reading this, most likely you are safe, healthy as I wish all of us will be.

My name is Galit, AKA Miss Galit. I am product development expert, and innovative ideas are part of my DNA. I developed a kit for safe bike commuting, made out of few inresting materials : recycled, biodegradable and knitted on seamless machines with antimicribial yarns. 

REI is the perfect brand to work on this and bring it to the market.

All developed directly with the factories and should be costed less then $5-$9 a kit....

Any Chance you can direct me to the right department and people at REI to pitch this great idea?
