Rock-hard abs, clingy but fierce significant other, rabble-rousing country tunes and phalanx of butt-kicking 18-wheelers not included.
If you were lucky enough to be a kid during the 70s, you likely recall just how cool trucking
was. It may be hard to believe for today’s youth (OMG I am old) but, once upon a time, being a trucker seemed like the coolest job on earth. Actually, not a job. A vocation. A calling. A lifestyle. On the rare occasions that I allow myself to daydream, I imagine myself hauling a load down I-40 with nothing but red rocks, desert, a gorgeous sunset and the promise of the next truck stop ahead of me.
Now you may be thinking, “Hey, trucking’s about as un-green as you can get.” And you’d be mostly right, although some thoughtful truckers are working to limit their environmental impact. Pretty cool.
Well, here’s a trucking-related green gift for ya, good buddy. Check out Used Rubber USA:
Used Rubber USA wallets, bags, and accessories are made from reclaimed inner tubes, a high-quality industrial rubber. We primarily use truck tubes, the kind kids swim or sled with, but also work with car, motorcycle, and bicycle tubes. All of the rubber is post-consumer waste which we reclaim from the waste stream ourselves. We invented and pioneered the idea of transforming waste inner tube into fashionable products and we have been paving the way since 1984 with inventive eco-modern design & education!
Let ’em know that Green Life Smart Life sent ya. 10-4!
