Road Id bracelets were invented for people who are usually playing sports alone (e.g., running, biking, riding, climbing a wall, walking a dog). Customers can request different information on the labels: medical history, allergies, contact information, etc., so it can be easier to reach relatives and facilitate medical care in various accidents. Labels can be easily applied to different types of smart bracelets, or even shoes, animal collars. Their mission is two-fold: One, to educate outdoor enthusiasts about the importance of wearing ID.
Terra Case cases are made of 100% biodegradable, compostable material and arrive in recycled packaging. Each Terra Case is made from a special plant-derived material that decomposes 100% in 6-24 months under compostable conditions, unlike traditional plastic that pollute the environment for 200-1000 years. Each Terra Case is unique in that the plant seeds appear in small patches, giving the case a special pattern. After each case purchase, 3kg (300 PET bottles) of plastic garbage is removed from the oceans in collaboration with The Plastic Bank.
