When you’re in the business of upcycling, connecting with likeminded brands is essential. Eco Brands Group, the parent company of the makers of adventure gear made from repurposed materials, Green Guru Gear and custom B2B brand Ecologic Designs , has acquired Alchemy Goods , creators of urban bags and accessories. This partnership produces the world’s most sustainable outdoor and urban gear made primarily from upcycled gear and other durable materials such as bike tubes, climbing ropes, billboard banners, wetsuits, and tents. Inspired by their love for the outdoors and design, each of these brands makes a difference in how people look at materials that were going the landfill. People show more interest once you start pointing out the diverse materials on a bag. Through their custom brand, they are able to work with companies and organizations that have durable materials they don’t want to dispose of, upcycling them into a variety of bags and accessories. Clients include a range of customers such as Patagonia, CLIF Bar, People For Bikes, New Belgium Brewing, and a growing list of sustainability driven organizations. Through Green Guru’s Recycling Program, they manufacture and source 80% of their materials within 40 miles of their Boulder office, reducing their carbon footprint significantly!
Together, their great minds will collaborate to continue to build the largest upcycled products company in the United States. With Alchemy Good’s similar business model, combining teams will allow for the company to share resources, enhance the innovation of sustainable products, and increase markets. Each product line will stay the same and continue to utilize more reclaimed materials into thoughtfully designed, durable, and stylish products.
Alchemy Goods fulfillment and administrative functions will move to Boulder and production will continue in Seattle. With the growth of the company, means expansion in the workplace. They have recently expanded their warehouse providing more office space, a bigger family, electric, and cargo bike shop called Front Range Cargo Bike Shop , (formerly known as the Cruiser Boutique), along with the Kettle and Spoke nanobrewery opening in August. Big things are happening in Colorado!
