Recycled Fire Hose Belt

You would never guess this cool belt is made from old fire hose from the London Fire Brigade. The Fire House, a UK based company, is constantly thinking about waste. The instant they met the London Fire Brigade they fell in love with their old hose. They scrubbed away all the soot, grease, and everything else that builds up after 25 years of active duty, and in the process discovered a truly remarkable, truly green textile. After a long search for a local buckle maker willing to use recycled pewter, the belts were born. On top of it, they are giving 50% of their profits to the London Fire Brigade's Benevolent Fund. A great gift for dads.

Available at Fire Hose.
