BLD’s business model includes an economic commitment to the Adirondack Park. It has partnered with the Adirondack Mountain Club to give 1 percent of revenue to ADK to help protect and preserve the park.
“ADK is proud to partner with an Adirondack entrepreneur who has married the values of economic development with ecological and environmental conservation,” said Deb Zack, director of membership and development. “BLD strives for the lightest carbon footprint possible in all the stages of making a t-shirt.”
BLD’s t-shirts include four designs: Paddler, Newt, Trekker and Black Bear and are offered in men’s, women’s and youth sizes.
