Welcome! We call it "Lava Rubber" because of it's spiritual similarity to molten lava. Just like a volcano naturally recycles the Earth into new terrain, we do the same with donated "scraps" headed for the trash. Instead of ending their life-cycle in a dark & stinky landfill, we upcycle these materials into useful products. We began our project in 2009 where we started collecting scraps from: surfers, divers, surf schools, camps, outdoor shops & manufacturers from the East & West coasts of the United States. In 2011, we formed LAVA RUBBER. In 2013, we became very proud partners with Terracycle. We have been working together for the last three years to invent new products & solutions for "hard to recycle" waste streams. Initially, we wanted to find an answer for the tons of neoprene and other useable scrap headed for a landfill each year. Over time, we have grown into a reliable waste stream manager of : recycled wetsuits, neoprene sheets, gaskets, weatherstripping, juice pouches, energy bar wrappers, mis-printed yoga pants and other clean scraps. We took our time to develop what we call the "most considerate mat on Earth". Even our packaging is upcyclable. All LAVA RUBBER goods are upcycled and handmade in sunny Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.
