Wooster Prep Crew Goes Green

Wooster, OH—For nearly 20 years Wooster Prep Crew® tools have taken a hands-on approach to making surfaces ready for paint.  This line of professional wire brushes, scrub brushes, and scrapers has unique features such as knuckle guards and varying shapes/sizes that make them stand out in retail aisles.  Now the Prep Crew line is about to turn heads once more as these tools convert from their original raw polypropylene beige handles to new green handles.

In an effort to reduce waste, Wooster has begun reclaiming and recycling materials that were once discarded during manufacturing.  The new marbled green handles are molded in-house from these recycled plastics; they offer the same rugged durability that Prep Crew tools are known for, with the added benefit of being environmentally friendly.

The Prep Crew program will transition to the green handles on a phase-in basis.  At press time nearly half of the 20+ tools are shipping with green handles, while others will most likely change over during 2013.  The full Wooster Prep Crew line is available at traditional paint and decorating centers, hardware stores, and paint sundry distributors or retailers.
