La Sportiva N.A., makers of technical climbing, mountaineering, Mountain Running® and hiking footwear, announces the launch of its Giving Greenback$ campaign rolling out this week at select Grassroots Outdoor Alliance retailers across the United States. For each pair of La Sportiva Hiking, Mountain Running® and Approach shoes sold, La Sportiva will donate a $1 to one of three charitable organizations: the Carbon Fund, The Conservation Alliance and Global Water.

“By partnering with us on Giving Greenback$, Grassroots Outdoor Alliance retailers will provide their customers with a chance to make a difference today,” says Laura Fryer, La Sportiva N.A.'s Marketing Manager. “Greenback$ is a turn key initiative for our partners. We designed the program to help retailers stand out from their competition, grow their business and spur their consumer base to play a part in positive change, one dollar at a time.”

La Sportiva is supporting this week's launch with a dedicated advertising campaign, in-shop retail Greenback$ clinics, shelf talkers, an eco-friendly array of marketing collateral and a designated website (www.givinggreenbacks.com) providing information about the program. As an incentive for the program, two beach cruisers will be awarded to the shop and shop employee who donates the most dollars through the sale of La Sportiva Hiking, Mountain Running® and Approach shoes. Prizes will be awarded 8/15/09.

La Sportiva's “Giving Greenback$” campaign is a partnership with participating retailers from the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance (GOA), a group which unites independent outdoor retailers and promotes the experience of outdoor enthusiasts across the United States. Supporting partners of the Greenback$ program include such specialty retailers as Wilson's Eastside Sports (CA), The Summit Hut (AZ), Skinny Skis (WY), Summit Canyon Mountaineering (CO), Wilderness Sports (CO), Pack Rat Outdoor Center (AR), Midwest Mountaineering (MN), Black Creek (FL), River Sports Outfitters (TN), Rock Creek Outfitters (TN), Great Outdoor Provision Co.
