Busy Beaver Button Co. produces the classic pin-back button in a clean, environmentally friendly way. Not only are our button parts made of U.S.-made recycled steel, but nearly all of Busy Beaver’s suppliers are located within 100 miles of the factory, reducing our carbon "pawprint". Also, all of our buttons are printed on paper made with a combination of recycled and sustainable reforestation.
Located in a vintage 1920's Chicago storefront, “The Beaver Dam” was rehabbed and modernized in 2009 with geothermal heating/cooling, eco-friendly insulation, insulated glass, rubber flooring made from recycled tires and reclaimed building materials. In 2012, we installed solar panels on our roof, harnessing natural resources to create your buttons so now your buttons are made to order using the power of the sun!
