Stay Green: Reuse, Reduce and Recycle

When you buy hoses you are diverting them from landfills which often take hundreds of years to decompose due to the synthetic material that some fire hose are made out of.

Every year Fire departments may dispose of thousands upon thousands of lengths depending on the Fire season. Can you imagine? Do the math. Thousands of lengths being dumped, each individual unit of hose can take up to 100 years to decompose—that is a long time in which they are just sitting and slowly decomposing in a landfill.

That is why it's important to recycle your old hose and buy used fire hoses. Buying them will divert from landfills and create a positive impact on the world.

4 Ways to help the Environment by Recycling:

  1. Recycling saves energy—the manufacture of a new lengths from “virgin materials” requires higher level of energy need then using recycled materials.

  2. Recycling reduces pollution and preserves the environmental condition. The energy saved in producing new goods from recycled  materials goes a long way to helping the global climate change. Be a part of the effort to reduce our carbon foot print— and make sure to recycle your new or old lengths.

  3. Recycling preserves natural resources. Instead of creating more materials needed to create, you can save used material to help produce working goods.

  4. Recycling saves the space that is used for waste disposal. A major portion of landfill space today is taken up by materials that could have been recycled. It's an awful shame considering we know how long it takes for a fire hose to decompose in a landfill. We can utilize materials and make working, usable, durable and sturdy lengths. Save the space for waste that can not be recycled.
