BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Green Guru, which manufacturers products from used inner tubes and other re-purposed items, will be collecting used bike inner tubes at the Interbike OutDoor Demo, Sept. 8-9. The company is setting up multiple upcycling bins throughout the demo areas.
Throughout 2013, Green Guri collected and re-used 26,000 pounds of tubes from more than 85 partners, including Kenda, QBP, J&B and retailers.
Besides bike tubes, Green Guru collects climbing rope, banner, tents, and wetsuits. Last year Green Guru turned Interbike show banners into custom notebooks for the IBD Summit.
