Hi, I’m Alex, my name’s Tyler. We live in Winnipeg, Manitoba and we want to make a difference. Here in Winnipeg, hockey is a major part of our city, but people don’t realize the effect they have on our environment
every time they go to the hockey rink. Most people use sock tape when they play hockey and the thing is that it’s not reusable so it just gets thrown in the
garbage. Once sock tape is thrown into the garbage, it breaks down to micro plastics, which end up in our watershed. They are harmful to animals and people. Here in Winnipeg, we found a local company called Sock Straps, which is reusable sock tape. By using Sock Straps, we are helping to
reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our watershed.
