The Earth. Our big blue marble in the universe. In Alaska, you likely have some connection to the outdoors, even if it's just the short walk to your car or the bus in the dark of December. The Fixed Line believes that we can help you enjoy your time outdoors in Alaska by repairing, rather than replacing your outdoor gear and apparel.
Outdoor gear sits in a weird place. Primarily made from oil, extracted from the Earth; long lasting and remarkable performance materials allow us to go out and explore and experience that same Earth that provided the raw materials. But if we toss our old, worn gear, we reduce the explorable acres by filling land fills and encouraging new products to be produced. At The Fixed Line, we are all for product innovation, but we also recognize the larger picture of consumption that hangs over the outdoor industry. In our small way, we hope that by providing a convenient, local source for repair needs, we can help you reduce your impacts and enjoy the Earth more.
Today we share some history of Earth Day, in the hopes that our readers and customers may consider fixing, rather than replacing that worn piece of gear or apparel.
Even better, get outside and play in the dirt, snow if you still have it or on the water. Experience this amazing planet first hand. Reduce, repair, reuse, recycle. Happy Earth Day!
