Green Guru, located in Boulder Colorado, makes a line of bike baggage, bike gear, duffel bags, messenger bags, bike accessories and wallets made of recycled or upcycled materials.
Green Guru was started by a group of young entrepreneurs, who enjoyed the outdoors, yet recognized that when they discarded materials, it had a negative impact on the environment. Initially, Green Guru built products from used but durable materials that had been discarded and by today’s terms would be considered rough around the edges.
Through years of experimentation, Green Guru now has a product line that when produced has reduced environmental waste and has been manufactured with environmental efficiency in mind. Composed of
Recycled / Upcycled Bike Tubes, Nylon Hardware, 100% Recycled PETE Fabrics from Post Consumer Water Bottles Hametownshoppes knows that the Green Guru product line will appeal to our customers.
Here are some startling facts:
2 million plastic bottles are used in the U.S. every 10 minutes
1 billion plastic bottles go into U.S. landfills every year
3 billion plastic bottles recycled is the equivalent of saving over half a million barrels of oil and eliminating 400,000 tons of harmful air emissions which contribute to acid rain, global warming and smog.
Recognizing this significant environmental impact on discarded plastic bottles, along comes Dirtball Fashion.
Their product lines, also carried by Hametownshoppes are T-shirts and skate wear composed of recycled cotton and recycled polyester. With the used recycled material, each T-shirt is essentially composed of the equivalency of 7-16 oz water bottles and their hats and beanies are composed of the equivalency of 4-16 oz water bottles.
