Give Something Small to Save Something Big

December 1, 2009

We recently completed a stunning batch of recycled content buttons for the Big Wild campaign, a joint initiative of Mountain Equipment Co-op and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. The buttons were made in East Vancouver from recycled steel and paper.

Proceeds from button sales will support  The Big Wild,  a community of outdoor enthusiasts working to protect 50% of Canada’s wild spaces. The buttons are for sale at all MEC store locations.

We recommend grabbing a full set for yourself and favourite friends. The graphics are awesome! They’re just the right size to put in a holiday card or use as a stocking stuffer and you’ll be supporting a great cause (they even have a place to write in “to” and “from” ).

Do Something Small to Save Something Big – head out to MEC and pick some up, you’ll be supporting a great cause.
