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!
Energy Bar Wrappers
Brian is a man of many talents, and we're not just saying that cause he's into triathlons. Growing up in a small town in New York, he spent his childhood in the Boy Scouts, eventually rising up to be an Eagle Scout. He moved to the Bay Area in 2005, started swimming races across the Bay, running a few races and riding bikes before deciding to just give in and do all three at once! A triathlete was born, and now Brian is an Ironman 5 times over, with many more to come. Beyond that, he's been on Mt. Everest, has trekked through Nepal, and he's a pilot. Is there anything this guy can't do? (We doubt it.)
