Like Us on Facebook, Support Leave No Trace

October 13th, 2010 By   

Tracy and Bigfoot of Leave No Trace, with Dave, Adina, Pam and Kelly of Tahoe Mountain Sports at Lake Tahoe

Remember our recent visit from Bigfoot, the Leave No Trace mascot? Well he came to see us in Lake Tahoe for a good reason. Today marks day #1 of the Tahoe Mountain Sports Leave No Trace initiative on Facebook. For every new Tahoe Mountain Sports Facebook fan we get in the next two weeks, we are donating $1 to Leave No Trace!

Yep, by simply clicking “Like” on our Facebook page, you can support the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, an educational nonprofit that promotes responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors.

Why Leave No Trace?

Our retail business doesn’t just thrive on the outdoors, we do. And if we can do our part to make sure we all respect the water, soil, snow, ice, rock, grass and sand on which we recreate, then we’re all for it.

Based on scientific studies and common sense, Leave No Trace has seven guiding principles: Dispose of Waste Properly, Leave What You Find, Minimize Campfire Impacts, Plan Ahead and Prepare, Respect Wildlife, Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces, and Be Considerate of Other Visitors. We at Tahoe Mountain Sports abide by these principles ourselves, and also strive to spread the word to our customers, whether they’re buying camping gear, ski equipment, clothes or shoes at our Kings Beach store or online.

Your Call to Action

We hope you take a minute to not only like us on Facebook but also get to know us and the products we carry from top brands like Patagonia, Black Diamond, Keen and MSR, most of which are environmentally responsible.

Although you may initially “like” us for this special Leave No Trace fundraiser, we hope you become lifelong fans of Tahoe Mountain Sports. We’ll gear you up for adventure, wherever you may live, so let us know how we can help you.

As of 12:01 a.m. on October 13, we had 516 Facebook fans; our Leave No Trace promotion runs through Wednesday October 27, 2010 at midnight PST. Let the liking begin!
