We keep it green at the Basement
You may have noticed that our logo is green, but our green-ness goes much deeper than that! Each of our stores has collection bins for you to recycle those mystery items you're not sure what to do with, from energy bar wrappers (they get turned into bags!) to climbing ropes (they get turned into leashes for rescue pups!). In fact, we recently won an award for our recycling program! Specific recycling is listed on each store page.
But being green is about reducing wast too—that's why we introduced our refillable propane program! Basementeers who buy a refillable propane canister from us can refill it for free, forever. So far, we've saved nearly 11,000 canisters from landfills!
Isobutane Canisters (no propane)
Like many kids from the 80s, Matt grew up playing tons of different sports, but his first true love was soccer. He played competitively for 11 years before hanging up the cleats and picking up some running shoes! He was an All-American athlete in college and even earned a NCAA Championship for the 800m. After college, he left the east coast for California at the invite of the Nike Farm Team, an Olympic training group in Stanford! 3 years later, he applied for a position at SB Sunnyvale and has been here ever since, running, cycling, camping, and even golfing from time to time. We're stoked to have him leading the team up in Santa Rosa!
