Like most individuals or companies, we must choose our battles. Yes, hoops are made with petroleum-based plastics and although it is possible, many do not last forever. To offset ethical & environmental dilemmas like these, we make decisions based on the triple bottom line, "people, planet, profit". Our intention is to be as socially & environmentally responsible as possible and here are some of the ways we put those beliefs into practice within Synergy.
In 2022 we outfitted our facility with solar panels and are now producing 100% of our own electricity.
Our packaging materials are either re-used or contain the highest amount of recycled content as possible.
All of our printer paper is either made from sugar cane (not trees) or 100% recycled.
We work with several local companies for parts & labor, making sure we keep our products U.S. made!
All of our creations are crafted with sustainability in mind to conserve energy & minimize waste.
We save as much from the landfill as humanly possible. We recycle all of our leftover crafting materials, including PE, HDPE, PP, Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, etc.
We work with The Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC to ensure that our scraps are reused first before recycled!
The Synergy Shop uses energy-saving LED lighting exclusively.
We have found the necessary facilities needed to recycle any and all parts of of the products we create. If you have a damaged-beyond-repair firehoop or other fire-prop, you can send it to us for recycling. We'll hit you back with a 15% discount code for being awesome. Contact us for details.
