If you have been following along with Eric Larsen’s Save the Poles expedition you would know that he was on his way up to the summit of Mt. Everest to complete his third and final leg. Well late last week Eric made it to the Summit. Eric has now been to the South Pole, the North Pole and the Summit of Everest all within one calendar year. An accomplishment that has never been done before.

Once Eric is back from his trip he will be setting out to use his findings and accomplishment to help educate people on the impact we have on the planet. We are very proud to have been able to sponsor his mission and assist him in bringing awareness to this very important topic.
Congratulations Eric and your entire team on this amazing accomplishment!
