The Mendenhall Glacier: A beloved landmark of Juneau, AK. Framed by the rugged peaks of Mt. McGinnis, Stroller White, Bullard, and the Mendenhall Towers it is a place where Juneauites and visitors alike come to play, explore, and learn. It is also a sign of hope. For many Juneau residents who see the Mendenhall Glacier regularly, it signifies how truly beautiful the Earth is and what it provides for us.
Unfortunately, it is also a visual representation of the repercussions of climate change. Within the next ten years, it is predicted that the mighty Mendenhall will have retreated far enough so it is no longer touching the Mendenhall Lake.
Now you can rock the durable yet soft Mendenhall Tee with us and show support not only with your words but with your actions. For every dollar in sales, we plant a tree. That means that with the purchase of this shirt, you'll be planting 28 trees! Whaaaaa! That takes an average of 967 lbs of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere each year. The same carbon dioxide that is trapping heat in our atmosphere and melting the Mendenhall Glacier.
