Maggie’s and Bioneers

For several years, Maggie’s has been involved one way or another with a very interesting group of folks called Bioneers. They provide educational solutions that focus on sustaining the earth and our existence based upon science and other social oriented data. Typically they hold an annual conference in Marin, CA that is simulcast to other locations across the country. We have teamed up to be the official supplier of Bioneers merchandise and anyone can place an order off of our website.

From the website:
Bioneers is a nonprofit educational organization that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring people and planet. Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges. A celebration of the genius of nature and human creativity, Bioneers connects people with solutions and each other. Its acclaimed annual national and local conferences are complemented by extensive media outreach including an award-winning radio series, book series, and a role in media projects such as Leonardo DiCaprio’s film The 11th Hour.

Every year, the Bioneers Conference draws thousands of people together who are passionate about solutions. From how mushrooms can save the world, to how Google Earth is protecting the rainforests, the practical solutions that come from the Bioneers Conference address many of our most pressing environmental problems. In addition to its main conference in San Rafael, California, the Bioneers Conference is transmitted to more than 18 locations nationwide--acting as a hub of information for people who are hungry for change and working to make a real difference in their local communities.

We are proud to say that we are now the official provider of “Bioneers Gear”! We have many items that feature the Bioneers logo and will provide this merchandise on-line, at each satellite conference and of course at the main session in Marin, CA in October 2009. Check out the gear on the Partners Page of our website, and check out the Bioneers website to learn more about what they are involved with!
