How To Recycle Your Wetsuit With Circle One Surf Company

 

As members of the Surfers Against Sewage Ocean Network we are proud to be part of a powerful network of businesses driving forward a strong message and enabling movement for change. The ocean is our playground, our place of relaxation and the place we love to share. Our aim is to always look after it and encourage our peers to do so.

In efforts to reduce plastic from our packaging we have developed cardboard packaging for all of our leashes, footwear, gloves, hoods and accessories, and are always striving to be 100% plastic free. Our products however, (like all) have a lifecycle. This is something that our team have been closely monitoring. Not only to learn how to increase product longevity, but also to figure out what happens to our products after their use is no longer required.

As part of our current services we offer wetsuit repair here at our HQ, in order to make wetsuits last longer and prevent more wetsuits ending up in landfill. We have also been recycling your old Circle One wetsuits. Using old neoprene in wetsuit repairs, creating patches and sections for wetsuits.

Alongside this we have now partnered with Barefoot.Tech, allowing us to recycle even more wetsuits!

About Barefoot.Tech

Barefoot.Tech is a unique sustainable accessories label that offers a wide range of products. All products are remade from wetsuits and other water sport materials.

Created by a fashion product design graduate from South Wales. Ffion grew up water skiing on the lakes of Wales with her family and after noticing the vast number of wetsuits collected in the basement with no ethical way to dispose of these, sparked the idea of recycling them into innovative items people would want to use.

After graduating from Arts University Bournemouth in 2020 Ffion’s small business has gained a lot of attention and is growing rapidly in the sustainability sector.

Understanding neoprene and its environmental impact encourage Ffion’s work ethic. Always a zero-waste approach when creating the products. Ffion believes that reusing and recycling wetsuits and life jackets into innovative, fashionable pieces gives another life cycle to the wetsuits. By extending this lifecycle it stops wetsuits from ending up in a landfill.

If you have an old wetsuit (any brand) you no longer want and don’t know what to do with. Send it back to us, or drop it off at our factory in Crediton. Please include a note in your parcel saying that you wish to recycle your wetsuit. Recycle over landfill every time!

Circle One Surf Co. Marsh Lane, Lords Meadow Industrial Estate, Crediton, Devon, EX17 1ES, United Kingdom
