The Reborn Rubber
Making pots or decorative items from plastic bottles or lamp covers from the cardboard boxes are few of the common DIY (Do it Yourself) things, which are done to reuse the trash and play your part for a clean environment and save the water being polluted. Because eventually all the waste and trash materials are dropped in the water, which not only pollutes the sea but also destroy the life of billions of living things living below the water.
As the water needs to be clean for the fishes and for us, who occasionally or purposely enjoy our oceanic trips. We all like to get surrounded by crystal clear water with natural landscapes on the boating trip, but how about making a small gesture to let the water remain clean by recycling the non-biodegradable items and reuse them.

Their mission is to produce wallets with fewer materials, which has the potential to pollute water and affect marine life. The raw material used for the making is the old wetsuit, which you might have used during your scuba dive, surfing or during a marine adventure and you think that you don’t require it anymore. Don’t throw it as you can donate that wetsuit to Reborn Rubber for making wallets.
You might be thinking that what you’ll get in return for your donation. Reborn Rubber will send you a new, smart and well-designed wallet made from the old wetsuit in return of your donation. Whenever a Reborn Rubber wallet is purchased, 10% of the amount is directly transferred to The Coran Restoration Foundation TM.
The designing of the Reborn Rubber wallet is simple and compact. The manufacturing is done from wetsuit and neoprene scraps with an undecorated style of stitching. There are 3 slots for keeping cards, two on one side and one slot on the other side. The designing is done to keep the maximum of 10 cards at a time due to the elasticity of neoprene used in it. the Reborn Rubber wallets offer easy sliding whenever the cards are kept in or pulled out.

The elegant and decent designing won’t let anyone know when you pull out this wallet publicly that this wallet is made from wetsuit or scrap neoprene unless you reveal the truth. It’s a choice for those who have a buttery finger and slips down their wallets very often.

The smart elasticity of the wallet allows enough space for 10 cards. The outer material gives a perfect grip to the buttery hands and the perfect stitching release the tension of cards to slip out of the wallet. Even if you accidentally drop your wallet during dive or while fishing or your dog just throw it in water without any reason.

The wallet is stiffed from outside to give a grip while holding it in hand and a silky touch inside because of the soft neoprene used to make the placing of cards easier. The properly cropped corners never hitch with your pocket lint and bring ugly strands out in the public.
