Why The Canary?

Our Tribute

Our logo, the canary is our tribute to all the miners’ lives which the canaries saved. Canaries were once regularly used in coal mining as an early warning system. Toxic gases such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the mine would kill the bird before affecting the miners. As canaries tend to sing much of the time, they would stop singing prior to succumbing to the gas therefore alerting miners to danger.
