Stumbling Upon Sustainbility

Rope Revival was started by a college student, Jonah Hanks, almost entirely by accident.

He had been working in outdoor retail for several years when he realized he had hit a bit of a dead end, especially with graduation happening in several months. He decided to resign and spend a couple months traveling before he had to get serious about a career. However, as soon as he handed in his name tag, financial catastrophe struck and he found himself facing some expenses far greater than what he could afford.

Thinking quick, he came home one day and found his first ever climbing rope sitting in the corner of his room, torn and unusable. "There has to be something I can do with this," he thought. After learning to sew and collecting thousands of pounds of rope, his efforts turned into what Rope Revival is today, which is well on the way to being the nations top rope recycling company.
