If you have a need for "rubber bands", investigate "plastibands" at 
your local office supply place.  They're not latex, but rather a 
polymer (polyurethane?) that doesn't degrade (as quickly as latex) 
and can also be used to replace broken tension bands in DC tape carts 
as well as drive belts on a few minifloppy drives.
