Fit & Advices
"Being ‘OceanPositive’ spans from not just what we do in the ocean but also what we do in our everyday lives. Items in our OceanPositive Collection are made using fabrics including a significant percentage of recycled content from post-consumer waste. This includes “Ghost” Fishing nets, brought out of the sea to be recycled and post-consumer plastic bottles."
During the neoprene production process, limestone is used to replace petrochemicals to form rubber chips. You achieve the same performance as traditional neoprene, but with way less environmental impact
One of the key ingredients of neoprene, Eco Carbon Black, is recycled by our wetsuit factory from post-consumer scrap tyres. This significantly reduces energy consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by 200g per wetsuit.
After the neoprene creation process, the redundant trimmed materials will be recycled and reused in the mixing process to produce more neoprene sheets. Overall huge amounts of raw materials are saved, energy consumption is reduced and waste water and air emissions are minimised during production.
