Upcycle Goods Launches iPad Sleeves Made From Salvaged Treadmill Belts

These new Upcycle Goods Rubber Tread iPad Sleeves are handcrafted in Seattle, WA by local skilled artisans who really care about what they are making. The rubber tread is sourced from a local treadmill belt manufacturer that was tossing the excess rubber into landfills. Upcycle Goods rescued the material, re-engineered it, and lined it with a soft, plush USA-made felt lining. The finished cases are functional, durable and the perfect fit for any iPad owner who is excited about keeping local factories humming and the landfills just a little less full.
