At Timberdog® we have built the world’s first multifunctional pet bed, with 14 outdoor/travel features. While RuffRest® is a sleek and unassuming bed from the outside, inside it’s a technical marvel, with zippered pockets, hidden sleeping bag, storage pouches, and virtually every component serving a dual purpose. Manufacturing it was no small feat, either, and now that it’s a reality in the marketplace, we are actively seeking ways to tighten the supply chain. We’re also looking to use recycled materials and even plant two trees for every RuffRest® sold.
As we continue to employ methods big and small to loop the manufacturing process (called “closed loop manufacturing,” due to our effort of repurposing returned/used pet beds), I’m always impressed by other businesses that are also working to leave the world a better place than when they found it.
Enter Rerouted, my new favorite marketplace for buying and selling used outdoor gear. Gone are the days of relying on unknown, shady, or potentially dangerous sales (Craigslist, we’re looking at you), or bid-based fighting for goods (eBay), or the embarrassment of haggling at garage sales. Rerouted takes the guesswork out of outdoor equipment sales and offers you an immediate transaction at a price that’s fair to the seller and a bargain for you. With categories in apparel, camping, hiking, climbing, skiing, biking, snowboarding, watersports and more, Rerouted clearly does not discriminate against any outdoor sport and there’s something there for everyone.
For example, on a quick camping/hiking search today, I found a Big Agnes Q Core SLX Sleeping Pad for 40% less than what you’d pay retail, an MSR Whisperlite Stove four times cheaper than what REI’s got it for, and a GreatLand Camp Chair for ten bucks. I wish I had known about Rerouted a few years ago, when I decided to drop major coin on an impulse shopping spree at REI. Going forward, all of my gear purchases are going to be on Rerouted.
