The tiny village of Whale Cove (population 353) in Northern Canada is finally going to have a recycling program, thanks to the efforts of a young villager named Sarah Igviksaq and http://www.stacksandstacks.com , an American Home Furnishings retailer. This new program would help pay for their sports teams to travel through the territories.

More importantly, these kids are deeply concerned about global warming because in Sarah's words "they will be the first affected by it." Sarah says, "they see changes in the way the weather works and animals act." Whale Cove is home to Beluga whales and polar bears and much travel is still done by using sled dogs. Just popping into a Wal-Mart is not an option for this tiny village that lacks a lot of resources.

"Sarah contacted us about needing recycling bins for Whale Cove," said Mel Ronick, founder of http://www.stacksandstacks.com , "and her letter was so compelling we decided to donate the bins and also ship them free of charge." Due to the remote location of the village, which is in Nunavut on the western shore of Hudson Bay, the shipping costs turned out to be extreme but Ronick was undeterred.

Mel Ronick recognized that it would be difficult for Sarah and her classmates to have "bake sales" or "car washes" to raise money in their tiny Inuit village. Mel Ronick, President says "Stacks and Stacks is committed to promoting effective recycling practices in the U.S. and around the planet to help save our planet."

Stacks and Stacks recognized that Sarah and her classmates needed to "do something" and applauds their efforts to make a difference.
