I buy from three different small businesses, some owned by retired firemen, that make fire hose products. One company gives a portion of sales to funding which will cover the cost of mental health education. Why? In the United States, suicide has recently become the leading cause of death amongst firefighters. Firefighters often suffer from PTSD in ways that we are still learning to understand, and less than 6% of departments have a mental health action plan. Also, additional funding will be used to purchase tools and rescue equipment they may not have otherwise been able to afford.
Also, A portion of the sales goes to helping collage students travel to other countries. Our country is stronger when we meet and know the people of the world and it's out students today that will build the relationships of tomorrow. Unfortunately many students can't afford even a simple trip and every student who can't travel is a missed opportunity for all of us.
These rugs are made from fire hose saved from some of the oldest fire companies in America. There are no two sections that resemble one another so each product is unique. The faded colors and textures of fabric woven into these products were earned in their years of service. In comments put if you want 1 2 or 3 of yellow rugs
Retired fire hose and waxed canvas combine to make a durable bag with clean look. Tough, water resistant, and looks great. With two zippers it works as a duffle or a backpack. The bottom is part of a rubber fire hose. 10" x 8" x 26"
