Busy Beaver's twenty years have been filled with innovation, creativity and many, many buttons.
Busy Beaver Button Company is a working factory in the heart of Chicago, IL. In twenty years, they've gone from one person working in her college apartment to a factory with fifteen employees and the production of over 60,000 designs and literally millions of buttons.
The factory is solar powered. In the summer, cooling is accomplished using a geothermal heat pump. In the winter, the pump reverses and heats the place as well. All steel used is recycled.
Join us as we tour the factory and pay a visit to the button museum as well, where you'll be able to see more than 9,000 historical buttons.
