Not feeling blue: repurposed sleeping mats.

Introducing our Petrol Blue collection.

These special products are made using old inflatable mats sent to us from Alpkit to repurpose. And repurposed we have, nothing goes to waste here.

They are tough, and water resistant. And what’s more, we will send £2 from every order made from this collection to the Alpkit Foundation. If that isn’t circular enough, then I don’t know what is.



What is the Alpkit foundation?

In a nutshell, Alpkit support grassroots projects to get people into the outdoors, and to help people protect the outdoors.

We are part of the Continuum Project.

In every Alpkit store there are donation boxes so you can donate your old and unwanted outdoor gear. Many of these donations go to brilliant charities and good causes such as:

Cumbria Youth Alliance

My Great Escape

The Thomas Theyer Foundation

Nottingham Bikeworks

But..some things these organisations cannot use. And this is where Dirtbags step in. Any wetsuit, broken beyond repair items, and now climbing rope will come to us for repurposing.
