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!
Alyssa was born and raised in Walnut Creek, and came to Sports Basement in 2014 at the recommendation of several friends who also worked for us. In her high school days she was a soccer fiend, but these days her focus is on yoga. So if you're looking for advice on yoga mats, apparel or even local studios, she's one of the best resources around. She's experienced in just about every yoga practice there is, from Bikram to Yin, and she's pretty into spin classes too, but more than anything she's into helping customers find the gear that works for them.
