Your purchase helps support the Alabi Recycling co-op.

Located in Santa Ana less than an hour from the capital, Alabi Recycling works with found scrap materials. Mario Alabi and his crew craft our popular inner-tube belts, wallets, and bags. The inner-tubes are found tossed aside in abundance, the by-product of El Salvador's common "taxi" trucks that navigate the very rough mountain roads and whose inner-tubes need regular patching -- until they can't be patched. Mario drives around in his motorcycle with sidecar and gathers them up, bringing them back to his workshop: an industrial washing machine and sewing machines. Once working solo, he now employs a small crew to convert the found rubber scrap into functional and durable accessories. This project both helps the environment and provides jobs in the community.

About the maker

Revy

For more than a decade Mary Ober has worked closely with artisans in El Salvador to bring their creations to fair-minded shoppers. We carry their line of products created by Alabi Recycling. Mario Alabi gathers up discarded inner tubes, the by-product of El Salvador’s common "taxi" trucks, washes and then creates belts, wallets and bags from them. This project both helps the environment and provides jobs in the community.

Revy is a member of both the Fair Trade Federation and Green America. We see them make significant changes in the lives of countless individuals and communities. Mary has continued this important work even after the passing of her husband and partner, Ron.
