    Recycle Your Old Climbing Ropes

    Climbing_rope1 In the spirit of our Common Threads Garment Recycling program, Sterling Rope Company is launching a climbing rope recycling program in partnership with Rock/Creek Outfitters, ClimbingGear.com, and the Triple Crown Bouldering Series. Old ropes will be sent to a recycling facility where they'll be melted into nylon pellets and remade into common household items.

    Read "Sterling Rope Recycling Program" on Climbing.com for all the details.

    Thumbs-up to everyone involved with this new program.
