Want to hear a scary fun-fact?  On average, Americans alone generate over 250 million tons of trash per year, and most of that just ends up in a landfill…which is not very fun at all.

 

We’re trying to change that statistic a little bit at a time through our various lifecycling programs.  Help us reduce, reuse and get more out of the things that already exist so that us humans don’t have to make any more of it.

Hang Tag Return

Send us the hang tag from any new Rime you have, and we’ll send you a care package in exchange – it’s our little way of saying ‘Thank you’ for your support.

Each Care Package contains a variety of different colored and sized di-cut stickers, and whatever else we can think of to send back to you!

How It Works

 

1. Get your Rime piece

It doesn’t matter if it comes from a shop, an event, a freebie, or from this site right here – as long as your piece is new and has a hang tag, it qualifies.

 

2. Carefully remove the tag

Our tags are attached by looping them through the hemp string attached. Carefully push the tag back through the loop without folding or creasing it, and then pull hemp string out from the piece.

 

3. Write a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope

This is how we get you your care package. Include your full name, address and stamps as if you were mailing it directly to yourself. Be sure to put enough postage on it so that it can get home to you, depending on where you’re shipping from!

Note: The size of your SASE will determine the amount and size of things we send back to you.

 

4. Fill and Mail

Put both the tag and your SASE into a new envelope and send it to the following address:

Rime Elements

ATTN: TRP

3810 131st AVE NE

Bellevue, WA

98005, USA

 

5. Wait for your return package to arrive.

Once we receive your tag and see that it meets the requirements below, we’ll get your package together and ship it back to you as soon as possible.

Requirements

  • Tag must not be folded or creased in any way.
  • Tag must still have hemp string attached.
  • Tag must not have any other markings aside from what is printed on it or a price tag if from a retailer.

Things to Consider

  • The larger envelope you send, the more stuff we’ll be able to put in it.
  • The more tags you send, the more incentive we have to hook you up bigger.
  • Any kind of fan-mail or things you would like to send us are strongly considered when packing your care package.

Headwear Repurposing

Have an old hat laying around that, for one reason or another, you just don’t wear around anymore?

 

Whether its worn out from multiple days of use, wearing around town 24-7-365, or you’re just ‘not feeling it’ anymore – send it back to us and well give you up to 30% off your next order. We’ll take these old rags of yours and donate them to the Salvation Army to help out those in need, and give you a chance to score a fresh style for yourself.

 

How It Works

 

1. Send us your Hat or Headband

Place your Hat or Headband in an envelope along with a piece of paper with your email written neatly on it. This is the most important part! If we don’t have your email, we won’t be able to send you your discount code.

As long as it’s wearable and warm, you can send it back to us. Please don’t send us pieces that are extremely dirty, torn, cut up, or something of the like.

 

2. Mail it to us

Please send your package to the following address:

 

Rime Elements

ATTN: HRP

3810 131st AVE NE

Bellevue, WA

98005, USA

 

3. Wait for your discount code via email.

Once we receive your package and note that it meets the requirements below, we will email you with the appropriate discount code.

 

Incentives

Those who submit acceptable Rime pieces will get a discount code for 30% off their next order.

Any other brand of acceptable hat or headband submitted will receive up to 20% off their Rime order.

 

Requirements

  • Hat/headband must be clean! Free from spills, bad smells, sticky spots or anything caught in the yarn.
  • Hat/headband must be intact and wearable. No holes or loose strings, it must be able to provide warmth.
  • You must include your email address written cleanly on a piece of paper so that we may contact you.
  • If pieces are found to be unacceptable, you will be contacted regarding the next step for the piece.

Wetsuit Repurposing

Have an old wetsuit hanging around thats riddled with holes, faded or just doesn’t fit anymore?

 

Instead of just trashing it, send it to us and we’ll find a way to use it. We’ll take that old rubber neoprene and turn it into Koozies, or something else, and we’ll be sure to get one to you too!

 

How It Works

 

1. Send us your old Wetsuit

Package up your wetsuit along with a piece of paper with your email written neatly on it. This is the most important part! If we don’t have your email, we won’t be able to get ahold of you.

 

2. Mail it to us

Please send your package to the following address:

 

Rime Elements

ATTN: WSR

3810 131st AVE NE

Bellevue, WA

98005, USA

 

3. Wait for your a response.

Once we receive your package, we’ll look over the wetsuit and see what we can do with it, and we’ll reach out to you once we have a plan.

 

Incentives

Those who submit acceptable wetsuits will get a discount code for 30% off their next order, as well as a free up-cycled wetsuit Koozie.

 

 

Requirements

  • Wetsuit must be clean! Sure, we wash them before doing anything with them, but go easy on us.  No one likes cleaning up someone else’s pee.
  • You must include your email address written cleanly on a piece of paper so that we may contact you.
  • If pieces are found to be unacceptable, you will be contacted regarding the next step for the piece.
