A recycled classic
One of Trek's oldest products, the Bat Cage continues to offer simple, reliable performance, and it is now made from recycled fishing nets. Fishing nets account for an estimated 10% of plastic in the ocean and are 4x more damaging than other plastics. This design and use of recycled materials help keep unwanted waste out of our water.
Made from recycled fishing nets
Recycled raw material is sourced from ocean fishing nets collected in Chile
Lightweight, durable design keeps bottles in place on the roughest terrain
Secure bottle retention on and off road
A global issue
Each year 18 billion pounds of plastic enters the ocean, polluting beaches and waterways around the world.
The net effect
Fishing nets make up an estimated 10% of all plastic in the ocean. What's even worse is that they're 4 times more harmful to the ocean environment than all other forms of plastic pollution.
A simple solution
The Bontrager Bat Cage gives new life to old and discarded fishing nets, keeping them out of our oceans and transforming them into something useful.
Bureo and netplus
Trek's Bat Cages are made from Bureo's NetPlus nylon pellets. Bureo collects end-of-life fishing nets in Chile and recycles them into raw nylon so they can be made into everything from sunglasses to skateboards.
One product, big impact
A one-year supply of our recycled nylon Bat Cages keeps approximately 44,000 square feet of fishing nets out of our oceans.
Partners for a better tomorrow
Trek is a founding member of NextWave, a cross-industry consortium of partner companies that are committed to keeping plastics in our economy and out of our oceans.
