There has been a surge in the popularity of rubber bracelets in recent years.

Many different charities and foundations now use rubber bracelets to support their cause and sell them for varying prices in an effort to raise money. As these rubber bracelets are highly visual they also help to raise awareness and help for others.
Another popular rubber bracelet is the ‘Support our Troops’ wristband that you will see on many people, particularly those who have family members in active duty in the military overseas.
Rubber bracelets allow the opportunity for many different types of customization possibilities aside from the many and varied colors that they are produced in.
They can be worn as a fashion accessory, as a sign of support for a charity, and even as a medical aid where they can store important medical information for the wearer should they ever need medical assistance.
The fact that there are so many different uses for rubber bracelets has been the reason why they are more popular now than ever.
Many rubber bracelets are embossed with different messages and words that people like to share with others.
There is also an increase in the number of hobbyists who are crafting their own custom rubber bracelets and there are several books on the market that deal with this hobby in depth.
