BUYcott Israel Alert: Purchase an MEC Membership Today!

Purchase an MEC Membership Today!

Already a member? Give a Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) Membership as a Chanukah or Christmas gift.

Let the MEC Board know that you support their ethical sourcing policy. Defeat efforts by anti-Israel groups to impose their views on the purchasing practices of MEC.

Background

Anti-Israel activists tabled a resolution this past April at the MEC AGM in Vancouver to boycott the Israeli goods MEC carries. Thankfully the resolution was soundly defeated. However, we want to be proactive in preventing these activists from continuing to impose their views on MEC by attempting to pass resolutions, or by electing their friends to the board in order to demonize Israel.

MEC has a very stringent ethical sourcing policy, which must be followed by the Israeli companies with which it does business. Click here to view these ethical sourcing policies.
