How Pump Pal is Saving the Planet and Keeping Drivers Safe
By now, we all understand that plastic pollution is causing destruction all around the world. Whether it is harming marine life or contributing to global climate change, the need to step away from single-use plastics has never been higher. Unfortunately, these single-use plastics have provided helpful staples all around the world for decades now—and we are well-accustomed to these conveniences.
Drivers love the convenience and protection of the plastic gloves that are available at gas stations, but there is no denying that the need for a reusable alternative is present. To meet this need, Pump Pal was born. Let’s explore how this product is changing lives and fighting climate change one driver at a time.
What is Pump Pal?
Pump Pal is a reusable protective device that was made to help provide a barrier between your hand and the filthy gas pump handles that exist at gas stations. Made with durable materials, this simple device allows you to fearlessly touch gas pumps and keypad devices without a need to worry about dangerous viruses, all while offering a simple and sustainable solution.
Protecting the Planet
In the United States alone, 16.5 million plastic gloves are used by drivers at gas stations every single day. After only a few seconds of use, these gloves are thrown in the trash without a second thought. Drivers need a solution to receive protection against the dangerous germs lurking on gas pumps and keypads around the world, but this shouldn’t come at the cost of the planet. By offering a single, reusable barrier, Pump Pal completely eliminates the need for single-use plastic gloves at gas stations.
Keeping Drivers Safe from Dangerous Germs
Drivers are worried about the grit, grime, and germs that are commonly associated with gas pumps. As much as we like to think that someone is regularly cleaning these devices, this really isn’t the case. The average gas pump is home to over 3,000,000 different kinds of bacteria—and now more than ever, we understand just how risky this can be. To make matters worse, 1,000,000 different kinds of bacteria can be found on gas station keypads around the world too. With Pump Pal, the need for a protective barrier is covered in one eco-friendly product.
We created Pump Pal to bring a positive change to the world. A couple of years ago, we were just two roommates living in Miami—but we had a vision to help eliminate the regular use of disposable gloves running rampant at gas stations. Following 7 different prototypes, countless late nights, and thousands of cups of Cuban coffee, Pump Pal was born. Now, it is available to drivers everywhere.
With a simple design, Pump Pal can easily be adhered directly to your vehicle for consistent use in the years ahead. Available in 8 colors that range from fun and eye-catching to subtle and neutral, this reusable device was made to inspire change and provide an easy alternative to the plastic glove use that is impacting our planet for the worse. Offering protection, comfort, and sustainability, Pump Pal is a must-have product that doubles as a great gift too. Help us to make the world a better place while protecting your health at the same time!
