Creative Solutions Engineering: Oxgut nears 50%!

Posted by Oxgut Hose Co. (Creator)

Hello Everyone. LauraLe here. Just back from a mtg with a talented friend & Creative Solutions Engineer, (don't you just love that title!). We met to discuss ways we'll make our salvage and materials prep processes super Energy efficient. Like TED Talks - worthy efficient. Filtering & recycling the H2O we use to clean salvaged hose...natural energy drying methods...minimal waste, maximum re-use of material fire hose and otherwise. I felt this meeting sort of encapsulated what Oxgut is all about - creative collaboration with a conscience. Bring... IT! We are so anxious to share this and much more with you. But, we do need a healthy "kick".

We're now inches from the 50% funded mark. Thanks so much to all of our backers! Please share our project, and help us keep retired fire hose from landfill, bring our fire hose mats to market and further develop creative solutions for this amazing material calling for a 2nd life of service. Many thanks! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1958606649/fire-hose-mats
