Where else can you find a doggy bag carrier as eco-friendly, durable, and puptastic as this one?! As lifelong dog owners and daily dog walkers, we know how helpful it is to have a handy, sturdy, doggy bag dispenser.  Handmade from recycled bicycle tires, these Revved Up Doggy Bag Pouches are truly awesome for you and life-changing for the artisans from Alabi Recycling in El Salvador.

 

The people of El Salvador are among the most generous and determined you'll find anywhere. Emerging from a civil war, they are striving to improve their daily lives and rebuild their ravaged country. Revy works with individuals and co-ops to help them earn a living wage and provide a brighter future for themselves and their children.

 

Alabi Recycling

Located in Santa Ana less than an hour from the capital, Alabi Recycling works with found scrap materials. Mario Alabi designs our popular inner-tube belts, wallets, and bags. The inner-tubes are found tossed aside in abundance, the by-product of El Salvador’s common "taxi" trucks that navigate the very rough mountain roads and whose inner-tubes need regular patching -- until they can’t be patched. Mario drives around in his motorcycle with sidecar and gathers them up, bringing them back to his workshop: an industrial washing machine and sewing machines. Once working solo, he now employs a small crew to convert the found rubber scrap into functional and durable accessories. This project both helps the environment and provides jobs in the community.
