TEKO, industry leader in sustainable, high performance socks, is having a little fun this year at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2009. The company is pleased to announce that they will be launching a TEKO Sock Monkey Adoption Program with all profits going to LEAVE NO TRACE. Attendees are invited to stop by the TEKO booth (29173w) during the show to â€œadoptâ€ a limited edition TEKO sock monkey.
â€œThe TEKO sock monkey was first introduced earlier this year at Winter OR to add a bit of fun to the booth,â€ says Chip Coe, CEO of TEKO. â€œThe response was overwhelming with people asking us to produce the monkeys for sale. Partnering with LEAVE NO TRACE seems like a great way to make the monkeys available, while at the same time, contributing to the protection of the outdoors.â€
The TEKO sock monkeys will be available in limited quantities during the show for $20.00. They are handmade in Boulder, CO from signature TEKO-merinoâ„¢ socks in solids and novelty stripes.
