Winter Wee Dos

We've had some great Wee Dos in store over the past couple of months.  Both these clips are about helping the preserve the mountains for winter sports.  Very apt with the recent snow fall we've had yesterday and today!

Salomon snowboards are helping to push the industry's perceptions on how we can make snowboards in a more environmentally sound way- and even pushing ideas forward, finding ways to set up technology in order to recycle our boards after we've wrecked 'em.

Respect the Mountains is an organisation helping to make tour operators and mountain resorts aware of how they can change their operations, to create sustainability in an industry which was not showing responsibility for their impacts on the environment they rely upon.  They also raise key issues for skiiers and snowboarders to consider, when travelling to or spending time in the mountains.

At some point in the near future all of the Wee Do talks will be available to watch online.

Last 5 places available for this...

With a chill in the air sweeping over London, we thought it an appropriate time to focus on an issue that winter sports enthusiasts should have a great interest in.

Our next Wee Do at the Carnaby Street store is tonight, 17th November; and we have Betony Garner coming in to talk about the Ski Club of Great Britain campaign Respect the Mountain.

She is passionate about green issues and has been trying to raise awareness about how to minimise the impact of snowsports on the environment for the last four years.

respect the mountain

Respect the Mountain was a campaign launched by the Ski Club of Great Britain in 2004 with the aim of safeguarding the mountains for future generations to enjoy. Its basis is raising awareness and educating skiers, snowboarders, resorts and the whole snowsports industry on how they can do their bit to minimise their impact on the environment. The talk will investigate how the mountains have changed, how humans have impacted them and what we can do as skiers and snowboarders to help.

For more information about the campaign go to: www.respectthemountain.com

 If you would like a free ticket to this event, please email (carnabyst@howies.co.uk) or call us (0207 287 2345) to reserve a space. 

As always we have free organic beers and juice available.  Doors open at 7.15pm.  Spaces are limited so get in touch quickly.

 Hopefully see you there :)
