Who They Are

The founders of Green Guru dedicate themselves to keeping their outside playground healthy and beautiful. The group of adventure lovers recognized the unsustainable elements of many outdoor adventure products, and decided to take action. By reusing materials that would otherwise be thrown out as non-biodegradable waste, like wetsuits, bike tires, and yoga mats, Green Guru has revolutionized the outdoor industry. They create durable, innovative products like bike accessories, backpacks, and wallets, with a philosophy that products used for outdoor fun should preserve nature, not harm it.

Why We Like Them

Green Guru’s approach to sustainability sets a precedent for the way that people can make a difference in their local community. Founded only a couple miles from our headquarters at EarthHero, Green Guru started with just a few bike enthusiasts who wanted to preserve their immense but sacred playground. Green Guru’s products provide a platform for education as they enlighten consumers to the origins of their products.

The Green Guru team has not only placed an emphasis on using recycled goods, but also on the process of recycling itself. It is difficult to gauge how to best dispose of some unconventional materials, but Green Guru has taken a massive step in making this process easier.

Across the country, they’ve teamed up with bike shops and outdoor companies that incentivize customers to donate their used equipment. By emphasizing community involvement and collaboration, Green Guru has prevented over 500,000 pounds of waste from entering the landfill, and upcycled it into their tough, stylish products.

Green Guru is a B-Corp certified company, and they’ve earned gold level status with the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program. They take sustainability seriously!

Upcycling vinyl salvages pre- and post- consumer scraps and repurposes them into new products! By upcycling vinyl products, companies are extending the life of the durable material. Banners, tarps, and even vinyl jeep tops can be repurposed into unique, waterproof, and long-lasting products!

Upcycled rubber can be salvaged from items like bicycle inner tubes or truck tires to make new products. The rubber is cleaned, cut, and sewn into new shapes to form durable and water resistant items like bags, wallets, and belts. Upcycling rubber tires can free up space in landfills and prevent chemicals from leaching into the ground when tires are disposed of. Recycling rubber lowers greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the amount of energy used and resources extracted create new rubber products, as most rubber products are synthetic and petroleum based.

Upcycled nylon salvages pre- and post-consumer fabric scraps and reuses them in new designs. Upcycling nylon prevents the need for new textiles to be produced, and extends the valuable life cycle of existing fabric scraps, rather than sending them to the landfill. Plus, it maintains the original structure of the nylon, so it eliminates extra energy that would otherwise be needed to break down or respin the fibers into new yarn.
