About this project
Risks and challenges
The rubber material we're working with has a rather large and costly mandatory minimum order size. With the small sample amount that we have received, we've been able to produce a handful of prototypes of each of the items seen here. We need your help to raise funds so we can bulk purchase the necessary material (diverting it from a melting tank or landfill), and produce the items in large numbers.
The primary challenge we face is acquiring the rubber tire inner tubes before they have been processed or shredded for scrap. With the relationships we've built so far we don't foresee this being a problem. With the incredibly large amount of tires that are discarded everyday, and the ever-increasing number of cars on the road, we don't anticipate any shortage of material being created.
The small workshop we've partnered with to assist in producing our prototypes is absolutely capable of producing larger amounts in a reasonable amount of time. Upon our project being funded, we will acquire all the necessary rubber and fabric materials and work closely with the workshop to have all the items produced quickly.
