WEST SYSTEM donating to Great Lakes non-profit
Posted on 29 August 2008
This year, WEST SYSTEM is giving something back to the environment with every purchase of 105 Epoxy Resin in size "B," the most popular WEST product.
The can is sporting a colorful hang tag, notifying consumers the company is donating 2 percent of the proceeds from sales to Alliance for the Great Lakes, a non-profit organization.
WEST SYSTEM manufacturer, Gougeon Brothers, supports the Alliance's mission to conserve and restore the world's largest freshwater resource through policy, education and local efforts.
The Alliance is one of the oldest citizens groups dedicated to protecting the Great Lakes. Formed in 1970 as the Lake Michigan Federation, the group broadened its scope and changed its name in 2005 to cover all five Great Lakes.
