In 2016, I was ready to burn my running shoes.
I was training for a marathon and had the worst foot pain of my life. I also had debilitating back issues day and night. As a result, I took pain pills, was deeply depressed by my loss of mobility, and almost quit my training. Miraculously, all that changed when my friend introduced me to "rolling out" my feet and back with a rubber lacrosse ball. I was floored by the relief that such a simple tool could offer. With daily self-massage, my pain went from unbearable to non-existent. The downside, however, was that the ball was heavy, and made of oil-based materials loaded with synthetics and chemicals.
As an athlete (and single working Dad), I knew that a daily self-care routine was vital for my physical and mental well-being. But I wanted better tools to support my routine: tools that were sustainable and light enough to take anywhere (like on backpacking trips!). So, I went searching the world for natural raw materials that were renewable, lightweight, and durable. During my search, I found sustainable cork and natural rubber from responsibly managed forests and small farms.
And with that, Rawlogy was born!
Our vision is to change the world by creating tools that support your self-care. We are building a community of people whose hearts and minds are dedicated to feeling better in their bodies. I would love for you to join our community; I would love for you to grow with us 💚.

I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
