About The Program


We upcycle adventure gear such as bike inner tubes, tents and wetsuits. We make reducing the carbon footprint of your favorite sports easy.

  • 1. Determine if your gear is ready to be retired
  • 2. Check our Recycling Partner list for a station near you
  • 3. Or send it to us at the address below

We recycle your:

  • Climbing Rope
  • Tent and Rain Flys
  • Road and Mountain Bike Inner Tubes
  • Neoprene Wetsuits

Send to:

  • Green Guru Gear
  • Attn: Materials
  • 2500 47th Street
  • Suite 12
  • Boulder, CO 80301


We offer various levels of support for education, signage, and shipping to help manage a collection center. Please email us at to learn the latest details. Initially, we provide signs, educational brochures, and environmental reports for your collection station, bins and storefront. We also include a listing on our website and gear exchange to cover the shipping cost of tubes. The more gear your store carries the more we are able to cover the cost of shipping! We offer Sport to Pro Partner Levels. Our Pro level is the most creative because we take your gear waste and make exciting new gear with your label!
