Rock/Creek, a Chattanooga-based specialty outdoor retailer, partners with Sterling Rope to keep used climbing ropes out of landfills through launch of new rope recycling initiative at this year’s Triple Crown Bouldering Series.
Chattanooga, TN, September 21, 2007 — As a continuation of their Redemption Initiative, Sterling Rope is launching a rope recycling program in partnership with Rock/Creek, ClimbingGear.com, and the Triple Crown Bouldering Series. Starting in October and running through the end of the year, Sterling will be collecting and recycling used ropes of any brand and rewarding those who participate with a discount on a brand new rope. Sterling feels that in cooperation with climbers, they can make a strong impact in the amount of old ropes that get needlessly tossed into landfills each year.
