Here at Armpocket, we’re providing gear for your next adventure. We want our products to inspire you to take that hike, bike that trail, kayak down that waterway, and climb that mountain. But we would be remiss if we didn’t take care to give these wonders of nature their due respect in return. As important as it is to enjoy the great outdoors, it’s imperative that we do our part to preserve and protect the environment to ensure its beauty for many more years to come!
We’ve made strides to be as eco-friendly as we can be by making durable, quality products that typically outlast the life of the phones they’re meant to protect! We’re not looking to churn out item after item at the lowest cost just for them to end up in a landfill after a few uses. Armpocket armbands are built to last and designed to be your trusty, rugged companion.
We recycle plastic bottles from the ocean and landfills and turn them into running armbands.
Every year, millions of marine animals – like sea turtles, seals, dolphins, and whales – are harmed by ocean plastic pollution.
That’s why we make our Armpocket armbands using rPET, a fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. Since our beginning in 2006, Armpocket has repurposed more than 3 million plastic bottles by using this fabric. Our mission is to motivate individuals to live an active lifestyle all while helping support the planet, ocean and all animals.
One of our other game-changing materials is naturally antibacterial and moisture-wicking bamboo, which is also highly sustainable and offers an alternative to native deforestation.
When we say we care about the planet, we mean it. It is
part of our responsibility to try to leave the world better
than we found it and we are doing our best to make
products that reflect this core value. And while we think
that providing quality, eco-friendly athletic gear is
valuable, so is providing our time.
Our company is made up of passionate individuals who eat, sleep, and breathe Armpocket, but who manage to find time to champion local preservation initiatives, as well. A cause that is close to our hearts is that of preserving the local wetlands—land that is home to countless species of vegetation, along with various waterfowl, deer, and reptiles. As a South Florida company, surrounded by the expansive beauty of the popular Everglades National Park, we are no strangers to the vital importance of protecting the natural ecosystem of our local wetlands. We are an ever- growing metropolis that will inevitably continue to expand, but we hope that our efforts will encourage sustainable growth that will work to incorporate existing habitats, rather than snuffing them out.
We want to know how you’re keeping YOUR local community (or Earth, at large) #ecohealthy and #ecohappy. Tag us (@armpocket) in your cleanup photos, recycling parties, sustainability programs—whatever you’re doing to help, we want to acknowledge your efforts and also thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
