Owner: Gail Burgin
Today we are talking to Gail Burgin from Rescued Bears, a member of the Live Green Perks program.
Why should a consumer choose your products over mainstream/non-green options?
Rescued Bears is the embodiment of "reduce, reuse, recycle" as everything from their clothing and the bears themselves have been rescued from being thrown away.
What are the most popular eco-friendly gifts people can buy from your shop?
The bear with hand-knit sweater.
Why is being green important to you?
All proceeds from sales go to support West Toronto KEYS. They help adults with intellectual disabilities teach their full potential and every single adult I have met loves bears.
