Going green

Posted on May 23 2017

 

  The AFFTA (American Fly Fishing Trade Association), estimates that the fly-fishing industry adds about 3.5 million plastic containers to the environment each year from retail fly sales alone!  When we first bought the fly shop, we switched to plastic boxes with attached lids, so at least we would be cutting back on the amount of possible trash along our rivers and streams. Now we are transitioning to paper boxes made from recycled materials.  We are joining many other retailers across the country who hope to eliminate a large amount of useless waste.

    Great idea, more retailers should figure out ways to cut down on the use of plastics. I commend you on leading the way to help save our planet.
