Give us your tired, your weary, and your wounded wetsuits. We’ll take ’em! Just please make sure they’re dry – we don’t like stinky wetsuits any more than you do.
Surfrider Pacific Rim have partnered with SUGA to help save your unwanted wetsuits from going to landfill. Simply make sure your wetsuit is completely dry and bring to any of these surf stores for a monthly collection, and they will soon be turned into yoga mats. The mats are amazing so be sure to pick yours up and support sustainable business practices! Find out more here on the SUGA website.
