repurposedGEAR #2.  "Damon, I am w/ our state waste exchange.  Would Repurposed Materials be interested in steel-toed rubber boots from a food processor?  The FDA requirements say that they can only be used for so long.  The boots are in gently used condition, and there are gaylords full of them generated throughout the year.  Various sizes, women’s and men’s, some white, some brown or green colored.  These are generated by a facility that has gone landfill-free." - Julie

How We Work:  "I was referred to your company by a colleague regarding some unique insulating material that we have in excess.  The material is a form of aerogel called Nanogel by Cabot. We used it to insulate an experimental oil well.  The material was quite expensive when we purchased it.  The unit cost is about $6,100/cubic meter!  There is nothing wrong with this stuff.  We just need to clear out our warehouse.  In addition, I am sure Cabot Corporation would be thrilled to hear about some unique, new use for the Nanogel." Leonard
