Project Description

"...globally humans buy a million plastic bottles per minute ...

91% of all plastic is not recycled”  

               -Trevor Nace-Ph.D. Geologist, Duke University, Forbes

Most plastic bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate (P.E.T.), and take about 400 years to decompose. Did you know they're highly recyclable? We saw this as an opportunity to educate others, help our pets, and help our planet. Our leash webbing is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. As we change our buying habits, we will make a positive change in our world. Never underestimate the impact you have. Re-think the way you walk and WALK with us.

Our Re-WALK leash is feature-rich and will become that perfect link between you and your 4-legged best friend. 

 

Each Re-WALK leash uses about 8-10 plastic bottles. Never underestimate the power and impact of small change. Your buying habits influence others to join the movement for better choices and ultimately a better experience with your pet and our planet.

Here’s a look at our webbing designs. Each has a story. The red webbing design is a Topo pattern of a section of the Colorado Trail that my husband and I ran 30 miles last year! I love the Colorado Trail and all its beauty. It’s a subtle part of who we are and the places we love. The grey webbing design is inspired by my daughter's heritage (being part Native American) and they developed this pattern with a bit of my (their mother's) input. I added an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic for woman, as an homage to being woman-owned. Hope you all love this design as much as we do! The yellow, orange, red mix (Mountain mix) is the Rocky Mountain range from our license plate here in Colorado.

Features: 

Padded handle for a comfortable grip no matter how you hold your handle.

For comfort moments

Handle detaches and re-attaches for ease of use when you need a moment of separation. Simply disconnect the G-hook from the handle, wrap the handle around another object and slide hook back into place.

Detachable handle for small situations

Need to attach to larger items? We got you covered for that as well. Disconnect the G-hook from the handle and connect it to the waist slider loop. 

Detachable handle for larger situations

Do you need to go hands-free and still want to be connected?

Simply disconnect the G-hook from the handle, wrap the handle around your waist and slide the hook into the waist slider loop. Adjust the slider to your size and off you go. If your pup happens to pull, the waist slider will not automatically cinch down.  

Hands-free and connected

Re-WALK leash has an integrated doggie bag holder. Simply drop in your roll or stuff in a few bags for your day's adventure. 

Doggie bag prep

Once you have a used doggie bag, tie a knot and slip that bag into the hook hardware and make a pitstop at your next waste station. 

Don't have to hold used bags

Do you need a more controlled and close-up moment? Sometimes we have traffic and other close encounters where a short leash is preferred.  Grab the "Close call handle" to better control the situation.

Backstory

My four daughters were born with Snoozer in their life.

He loved them unconditionally. Some times they would try to ride him and those soft ears were impossible not to pull when you're a toddler. He was always happy and always loved us. Snoozer bought out the best in us. He was always excited about a walk and an outdoor adventure. Snoozer was the link that constantly connected us to the great outdoors.

Snoozer and the family

In 2018 we lost our sweet pup, Snoozer, to old age and a broken body. My girls had never known our home and life without our dog. He gave us the love we needed when we most needed it.  He was a part of us.

Ever since that very sad day in January, our home has felt an emptiness. Our daughters dearly miss their four-legged friend. They have begged and pleaded for a new pup.

I know by creating a great product and business, we could impact our outdoor community for our pets and planet, and most importantly, empower my daughters for life.

Two things that inspire us: the beauty of the outdoors and the love of dogs. That’s how WALK was born. What’s the one phrase that makes every dog happy…"Let’s go for a walk", "wanna walk?" Sometimes you don’t even have to say anything but simply grab the leash, your pup knows what’s going to happen. Joy, excitement and happiness! We want to reconnect with the great outdoors with a new best friend. We are recreating that link - our leash, Re-WALK. 

Through research and prototyping, we have developed a great option. We discovered some deficiencies in current products and opportunities for improving both the outdoors and our leash.  Walk differently, re-think the way you walk and WALK with us.

The Campaign FAQs

 

What is the leash rated for? (weight/strength)

 

Our webbing has a break strength of about 1000 lb-force (4.5kN). The swivel carabiner is rated for 630lbs (this is industry standard for a large 90lb dog). So most large dogs or smaller should be fine!
