A firefighter and his wife create bags made from gear that protects on the front lines of firefighting; a pediatric nurse from Boston showcases a vibrating mat that can calm a crying baby in seconds; a former Army intelligence officer and his business partner from Portsmouth, Ohio, heal wounds with an ointment made from essential oils; and a Peace Corps volunteer who spent time in the Amazon rain forest produces a natural fruit snack made with acai.
PITCH: Firefighter Turnout Bags
Firefighter Turnout Bag is the first company in the world to recycle old firefighter gear. After every ten years a firefighters gear expires and they must throw it in the trash, then get a new set. Firefighter Turnout Bags saves the gear from the trash. We then decontaminate it and recycle the gear into unique, stylish bags, and accessories. This saves massive pounds of waste in landfills, dramatically reducing our carbon foot print on the planet. It allows people to show their support for firefighters in a way like never before, and allows firefighters and their family's to keep their gear for sentimental reasons. We are so honored to learn how much people love this product and were honored to make it.
