Colorado winter sports are in full swing!  Don’t let the season go by without exploring our beautiful mountains one way or another.  Whether your favorite activity is hiking, snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, or winter camping (if you’re brave), you’ll find everything you need at Mountain Equipment Recyclers Inc.

Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc. has multiple goals.

  •  Offer high-quality gear at extremely reasonable prices.
  •  Assist local military veterans and their families.
  •  Preserve the environment.
  •  Contribute to ‘buy local’ ideas.

If you’ve ever tried to shop for brand-new outdoor gear, you may have discovered the same thing that I did:  your hard-earned dollar doesn’t go very far anymore!  When we were kids, a camping trip was considered an inexpensive option for a family vacation, right?  Consider stopping by Mountain Equipment Recyclers Inc. before your next big activity and I’m sure you’ll find some amazing deals.

By shopping at Mountain Equipment Recyclers, Inc., not only are you saving money and the environment, but you are also supporting local efforts to help soldiers and their families.  Do you have outdoor gear taking up space in your home that you no longer need?  Donate it to Mountain Equipment Recyclers, and 50% of its sale will be donated to non-profit organizations.  5% of consigned items are also donated.
