Founder and President, Re-Action & One Tree at a Time
Co-owner of The Boot Lab, a ski boot-fitting shop in Meribel, Gavin began sending back un-recyclable packaging to his suppliers and questioning the un-sustainability of the current retail model.
He founded One Tree at a Time as a way of educating and serving the community, reducing waste and keeping ski clothing out of landfill and on the mountain.
Re-Action is designed to scale up the concept of One Tree so more communities can benefit and more waste can be eliminated.
