We keep it green at the Basement
You may have noticed that our logo is green, but our green-ness goes much deeper thant that! Each of our stores has collection bins for you to recycle those mistery 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!
Eric joined our Sunnyvale team in late 2014, bringing with him a wealth of industry knowledge from his time working as a sales rep for some of our favorite brands. He was born in LA but thankfully (his words) his parents relocated to the Bay Area. He's been skiing since he was little, and was a competitive swimmer in his youth, but his main athletic pursuits now consist mainly of biking, swimming and playing soccer with his kiddos, though he still manages to hit the slopes on powder days!
Stafflete Donna Troyna
Donna Troyna is kind of a superhero. She's been working for Sports Basement for almost 8 years, starting her career over at our Walnut Creek store and moving up in the ranks to become the manager of our Sunnyvale store's receiving department. She works hard, yeah, but trust us when we say that this woman runs hard, too. She's so humble and so sweet, but she racks up cred every time she laces up her Altras.
Need examples? Donna just completed her 122nd marathon (nope, no extra numbers there, that's really one hundred and twenty two) and she also recently completed her 31st Big Sur International Marathon. Beyond that, she's the only active female member of the Big Sur Grizzled Vets, and she's the only woman to have completed 31 of the Big Sur Marathons. She IS #fitnessgoals. And she's a dog lover, too! She shows and trains Basenjis (catch 'em in her video, they're far too cute for words, and so well-trained!) What's her lie? She's not into swimming. I mean, she can't be great at everything, after all.
You like us! You really like us!
