Cycle to Recycle

November 9, 2009 | by Dr. Jess

Recycle your old cycling tubes! I recently attended a graduation in Pleasant Hill, CA and their teacher of the year was a science teacher with long, unruly hair and cowboy boots. He gave a send-off speech to the graduating seniors and repeatedly spoke about the future and the environment. His motto: “Everyday is Earth Day”. Press Play and Innersport will continue to do their part in “Everyday is Earth Day” as we will now be collecting old tubes and shipping them up to Cycle Dog. A canine product company, Cycle Dog, in Portland, Oregon found a creative way to recycle old cycling tubes. They make dog collars and leashes out of the rubber, which keeps the tubes out of the landfills. You can visit their website at: www.cycle-dog.com. If you have old cycling tubes, please feel free to drop them off at Innersport, located at 1250 Addison St. Suite 102, Berkeley, CA 94702. If we are not in the office, you can leave them outside our door. Have a creative way to recycle cycling tubes? We’d love to hear about it. Comment on this post so we can all learn more ways to help the environment.
