Ifs, Ands, or Buttons

Pollinators, Garden Friends Ceramic Magnets or Pinback Buttons: Supports The Ottawa Food Bank's Community Harvest Program

These buttons or magnet feature our favourite garden friends: pollinators! These five designs come in a delightful set together and feature a hummingbird, bee, moth, butterfly and lady bug!

-----Specs & Physical Details-----

Both variations (buttons or magnets) measure 3.175cm (1.25") in diameter (from edge to edge).The designs are protected by a thin, but resilient mylar layer which makes them water resistant. They can be readily cleaned with a damp cloth as needed. They are not waterproof (though personal experience has shown them to survive an accidental cycle through the washing machine...oops.)The buttons have a metal pinback enclosure. They are durable and good quality.

The magnets have a strong ceramic magnet: they are not just for display, they really work. They can hold up to 6 thick pieces of printer paper! These strong magnets are not glued to the front, instead, they set in a metal bracket that is machine pressed/crimped onto the front. As the magnet is not glued, some limited movement within the piece is possible - this will not affect use.

-----Information on the Cause-----

$1.50 from every set sold goes to the Ottawa Food Bank's Community Harvest Program. They grow and collect nutritious, local produce for clients served by Ottawa Food Bank member agencies across the national capital region. In 2016, the program distributed a total 138,641 lbs of fresh produce! Over 90,000 lbs of which they grew themselves!

You can read more about them at their website: http://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/

-----Tips and Tidbits----

If putting a button on a bag for long term use, consider putting a glob of hot glue on the clasp. This will make it even less likely for the button to be lost as the pin won't be able to leave its cradle!
