WHAT YOU CAN DO
BOUNCE is a movement to support the material that keeps the world moving. Natural rubber is an irreplaceable component in tyres, condoms and medical equipment, and it powers some of the largest consumer sectors in the world. Everyone, everywhere, every day uses a product that wouldn’t exist without natural rubber – yet the story behind natural rubber is not well known.
The fact that it is an unsustainable industry headed for crisis even less so. BOUNCE aims to shine a light on that situation. We want to make the natural rubber supply chain fairer and more sustainable for the people and communities who power it – and to empower the consumers of natural rubber to demand the most ecological and ethical product possible. That’s where you come in.
By supporting BOUNCE, you help to support subsistence farming communities across Asia and Africa. You help to ensure that natural rubber is made using sustainable farming practices that promote a healthy planet. And you help to create fair pricing for natural rubber farmers.

Tires on a car or bicycle used to get to work. Tires on planes and buses that take you to vacation destinations. Or tires on trucks that bring products to the stores where you shop.
