50% profits will go towards supporting the efforts of Save the Boundary Waters in the fight to protect the land from the Trump administration.
The Trump administration has:
Shredded the federal Clean Water Act,
Gutted the National Environmental Policy Act,
Arbitrarily reinstated expired mining leases,
Made a joke of the environmental review process and ignored citizens,
Cancelled critical studies,
Suppressed important science,
All with the goal of handing over America’s most popular Wilderness to be exploited for the benefit of a Chilean mining giant Antofagasta.
America has 24 mines producing copper. There is no shortage of copper, but there is only one Boundary Waters.
Save the Boundary Waters is leading the effort to prevent copper mining on the edge of the Boundary Waters. This approach already includes multiple lawsuits, a permanent protection bill in the U.S. Congress, an intensive expert review of the Mine Plan of Operation to expose the dangers, and much, much more.
