I don’t know about you, but I like that people know I love hockey. I probably have something on me at all times that is directly related to the greatest sport on Earth and I couldn’t be prouder of it. About a week ago, I reached out to the people are Requipd and they DID NOT disappoint.
Requip’d is the premier leader in repurposing game used hockey sticks into cool and unique products including, BBQ tools, bottle openers, snow brushes, and my personal favorite, ice cream scooper. Requip’d receives sticks from 19 NHL teams, 60 clubs at the NHL, NCAA and junior levels, CCM, Warrior and True— maybe you’ve heard of them? They have repurposed over 57,000 sticks to date that would otherwise have gone into landfills all over the world, it’s 2018 and Requip’d is doing their part to clean it up. Their products are the perfect gift for the hockey player or fan in your life.
I’m going to breakdown my 3 favorite products this company has to offer.
Close your eyes and imagine a 75 degree sunny day with a little bit of wind, a TON of beers and your best friends just chilling at your house or the park. Somebody suggested having a BBQ and you whip out these bad boys. Requip’d sent me a set of these and not only do they look sweet, they’re actually very good quality as well. While you’re flexing on some burgers and some dogs, you can look like an absolute beauty doing so.
For the last 8 years I’ve use a hockey stick to clean off my car. I am entirely too lazy to go to the store and I always have a twig on me. The problem with using a stick is that you can get the ice off. While you may have mastered the art of snow removal, you still have to wait like 20 minutes for the ice to defrost. Well, not anymore. Requip’d also sent me a snow brush and much like the BBQ set, it not only looks dope but is great quality. This brush will be lighter than what you’re accustomed too but for how light it is, it is incredibly durable. If you’re freezing your ass off in the middle of a blizzard shoveling off your car, you might as well be doing it in style.
Ice Cream Scoop
It’s no secret here, ice cream is my favorite food on earth. Having said that, it’s impossible to find a good scooper. Normally, they work for 2 or 3 times before bending up and becoming no more useful than your standard spoon. Well check these outs. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, Requip’d is not just about looks, but they provide a QUALITY product. And honestly, scooping a chunk of peanut butter pandemonium with a Bauer supreme is the closest thing to heaven on earth that there is.
Requip’d is not done there. They also offer: Bottle Openers, Golf Brush, Ping Pong Pattles, Picture frames, Brooms and Plungers
