FAQ

Why Chalk Rebels?

Chalk Rebels grew out of the frustration of seeing the damage done to our natural bouldering spots by chalk over-use. Using a little chalk never was a big deal but the bouldering boom of the last decade or so has turned what was once a bad habit into a real problem. Chalk belongs on your fingers, not the rock! And if you’re climbing indoors no one likes to inhale clouds of chalk dust. The main culprit is chalk in powder form. Alternatives exist in the form of Chalk Balls & Liquid Chalk. Chalk Rebels was founded to encourage the use of these alternatives & help you kick the powder chalk habit!

What makes Chalk Rebels different?

Chalk Rebels is a company with a mission. We believe in creating the best products to help reduce chalk use in the climbing community. Unlike other chalk companies we don’t offer bogus claims about our chalk. The truth is that it’s all just Magnesium Carbonate (MgCo3) & the only differentiator is purity. We source our chalk as pure as we can get it because pure chalk means less chalk use. When you buy a Chalk Rebels product you know part of every sale goes towards saving our planet & can rest assured that sustainability has been taken into account in every step of our production process.

Are Chalk Rebels products sustainable?

We believe sustainability is a process. That’s why we have chosen to incorporate as a B-Corporation. This means that we are legally bound to take all stakeholders’ interest into account & not just increase shareholder value at all cost. As a B-Corp we are required to regularly consider the impact of our decisions on workers, customers, suppliers, the community, and the environment. If we don’t we lose our B-Corp Certification. We may not get everything right today, but our corporate structure guarantees that we will be a better company tomorrow.

How many Chalk Balls do I need?

When you use Chalk Balls you only need to apply a fraction of the magnesium carbonate you would use when compared to chalk powder. A single Chalk Ball can easily last a month even for frequent climbers. We recommend a pack of 3 balls for your first order. We have volume boxes of 50 to 100 balls for our retail partners.

Do you offer any other products besides chalk balls?

Not yet. We have other alternatives to chalk powder in development but those are not ready for the market yet. We’re particularly excited about our own formula of liquid chalk cream. Coming soon.

Yes we do. Please reach out via email if you think you’ve got what it takes to be an influencer.

Isn’t all chalk the same?

Pretty much. Climbing chalk in its purest form is a pretty simple product. It’s just Magnesium Carbonate (MgCo3) & is dug up in just a handful of mines worldwide. Some manufacturers add drying agents & fillers but the truth is that high purity Magnesium Carbonate works best. We make sure

Why don’t you sell chalk powder?

We believe that one day we will look back at using chalk powder like we look back now at smoking. It’s a bad habit that somehow we picked up & it will take a while for the climbing community to kick.

Am I a bad person if I still use chalk powder?

Yes you are! Just kidding. Kind of. It's like smoking. We won't judge you if you do but you know it's better for you to stop.
