This month marks WRAPTIE™ three year anniversary, and over the three years we've made it an core value of our business to give back to Mother Earth.
Our motto has been:
WRAPTIE™ strap systems are unique in many ways. The patented Fast Grab End and Quick Loop systems make WRAPTIE™ straps faster than any other tie down systems around.
However what our products are made of is what is most important to us. Over the last three years, we have turned 60,148 plastic bottles (and counting) into WRAPTIE™ products!
Other ways we ensure an earth friendly product and process:
Our goal, to put it simply, is to turn over 1,000,000 plastic bottles in brand new WRAPTIE™ tie down straps.
The WRAPTIE™ team cares deeply about the health of the planet, and doing our part to ensure a better environmental future for it. It's been a long journey for Co-Founders Mark and Paul.
Mark remembers exactly where his environmental journey began.
"My wife and I had moved to Thailand for work and I saw again the incredible amount of pollution washed up on the beaches that I finally decided that I need to do something. I wasn’t really sure what I could do, but I couldn’t just sit there, watching the planet get consumed by our waste."
So with each year WRAPTIE™ is creating tie down strap systems, as well as other unique products created from recycled materials, we get closer to the goal of 1,000,000 plastic bottles turned into useful products for you.
Well, there's the obvious: by purchasing products made with rPET you are reducing the amount of plastic waste to be dumped into landfills.
And there is this, nicely put by our friends at EarthHero:
"When companies choose to use rPET in their products, they provide a market for recycled plastics. Like any business, recycling facilities have to make money–if they’re not turning a profit from the materials they collect, they’ll stop collecting them. When consumers purchase products made with recycled content, they’re sending a message to companies that they value their sustainability efforts! By creating awareness and demand for recycled products, we help solidify recycling programs and recycled goods as valuable pieces in the production process."

There are many ways to transport your board (maybe correctly, questionably, or illegally) but having a roof rack is undoubtedly the best option, at least safety-wise. If you do not have one yet, do consider installing one for for the sake of everyone’s safety, to maintain the condition of your board, and for your peace of mind. To secure your surfboard to your roof rack, you will only need WRAPTIE™.
