So first off, we at AGL LOVE Jesse over at Trash Panda and everything he is about. After our first couple discussions - he and I quickly realized that we see things very similarly. We worked together to bring you these discs that are made with Post Consumer Recycled Plastic, along with our famous Organic Hemp mixed in for a super awesome blend, that is also ecologically sustainable. And THAT was something that Jesse and I want to continue to bring to this industry - just another possibility of how we can make our favorite discs, using a source material that has already served it's prior purpose but now living its life as an awesome disc that is flying through the air and banging chains!
Your purchase of one of these discs will ALSO guarantee that a tree is planted. We stamped just over 500 discs for this collaboration, and in turn - Trash Panda & AGL - came together to buy 500 trees for this project with the company: One Tree Planted. So you can see our progress of our trees and how they're doing. This is such an awesome mission and we are stoked to be apart of this!!! That is why we put on the disc stamp "This disc planted a tree"! So you know your purchase went to an extremely good cause!
We have decided to help play a part in rebuilding California's wildlife. Below you can see some information regarding why we chose that route.
Trees play an important role in the vitality of California communities. Your contribution will help plant trees and restore forests throughout California. These foresters work hard to promote improved vegetation planning and resource management, helping to reduce the risk of catastrophic fires and floods in the region. Five years of drought and a large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged California’s forests. 2017’s record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. 2020's fire season has consumed close to 3 million acres, resulting in hundreds of millions of trees that will need to be restored.
Colors of discs vary. For example the greens go from an almost bright green to a darker green, to an almost lighter green. The creams can go from a white to a darker cream color, while some listed as cream are almost a Mint-y cream color. The pinks go from hot pink to light pink. Most of the stamps are white in color but there are a few colored stamps. You may get lucky! This stamp is pretty much entirely solid areas, so if there is a little drop-out - MY APOLOGIES!! I sure did my best! But we made sure you could read all the words, as that was the important part!
Thank you all for your support and we are looking very much to other collaborations with Jesse and Trash Panda. Much Love! #AGL Discs #AboveGroundLevelDiscs #TeamAGL
