Sonoma-USA is a local company that recycles used vinyls/banners from local cities, businesses, individuals, billboard companies, and transforms them into stunning bags, purses, wallets, laptop cases, and more.
By helping the environment and recycling these materials that are typically never used again they can increase to knowledge of sustainability, recycling, and overall helping the local communities.
Sonoma-USA donates a percentage of their profits to charities in the local communities. One partner, Sonoma Raceway, asks to have the profits from their used banners to be donated to Speedway Children’s Foundation. We at Veale Outdoor will choose to have the percentage donated to the Salvation Army.

Kickstarter Campaign for Sonoma-USA
Sonoma-USA has a Kickstarter campaign running and are asking for a pledge of $30,000.
Go check out their page and watch their video showing their wonderful products.
The products are extremely sturdy and durable with a “feel good” aspect since you would be helping the environment and local charities as well. By pledging a certain amount of money you will receive a special product made just for you. No one product is the same, it is unique to you, and no one else.
We at Veale are proud to start working with Sonoma-USA and are looking forward to helping spread the word about sustainability and the local communities.
