Waste to Waves(TM) is an exciting new program by Sustainable Surf. It’s for recycling lots of different waste materials into new, “eco-friendlier” surfing products.
For the initial launch campaign, you can “Turn Your Trash Into Slash,” by recycling your waste packaging foam – aka “styrofoam” – into new products like eco-friendlier surfboard blanks. By participating, you can directly help create “greener” surfboard materials that help reduce negative impacts from surfboard production, and you’ll be diverting this foam/plastic trash away from the waste stream and potentially ending up on our oceans, waves and beaches. “The program operates in select surf shops in both Southern and Northern CA. We can’t work without your help! So head down to your local participating surf shop to drop off your recyclable “styrofoam” into a Waste to Waves branded collection box. We will take it from there!”
