Guilt-free Fashions
 from NALT

 NALT has made the leap to offering ethical merchandise.  New items include zippered and pullover hoodies embroidered with the NALT logo, and a few remaining T-shirts featuring the Edible Wild Plants Project - all from metowe, a Canadian social enterprise that is committed to providing ethically manufactured apparel and other products.


 

All of metowe’s clothing line is made sweatshop-free in Canada of certified organic cotton, and 50% of metowe’s profits go to Free the Children, an organization founded by Craig Keilburger to support child development projects around the world.

 

NALT can proudly say that most of our merchandise is now Canadian-made in ethical environments.  In fact, much of NALT merchandise is produced locally. The NALT logos embroidered on clothing items were done right here in Nanaimo by Threadscape Custom Apparel; Mount Benson and Linley Valley silk-screen graphics were designed and printed by Senini Graphics; calendars, featuring local photographers are printed in Victoria by Fotoprint; a new line of gift cards featuring local photos is printed by Eye Mean Graphics in Nanaimo, as are our Linley Valley and Mount Benson trail maps; native seeds, plants and Christmas trees are products of NALT’s native plant nursery - and the list goes on.


Keep in mind, NALT merchandise items make great gifts any time of the year - or buy for yourself and the support the world you care about!  All items are on sale at the NALT Stewardship Centre at 140 Wallace Street in Nanaimo during office hours: 10 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
