This week marks the kick-off of the Chris Velan 1% for the Planet Tour. Sponsored by Mountain Equipment Co-op, the tour spans Canada from Vancouver to Montreal throughout April. 1% member and musician Chris will be headlining the tour with performances in MEC stores and venues in seven cities, all focused on raising awareness of local environmental issues. Representatives from the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, a 1% non-profit recipient, will be on hand at each stop to share stories of progress made as a result of donations from 1% members like MEC.
