Rip Curl is offering a $ 20 voucher if you recycle your old wetsuit
Rip Curl is giving back to Australians who recycle their old wetsuits in November with their âWetsuit Recycling Programâ.
The iconic surf brand is calling on all surfers to reduce their environmental footprint by recycling their unused wetsuits. They will receive a $ 20 store credit voucher the same day for doing so.
From today until November 25, anyone can drop off any wetsuit at Rip Curl stores in Australia to receive their voucher (for those living in Tasmania, Northern Territory or in ACT, the selected stores will also accept the return of combinations via Publish). The materials will then be recycled in partnership with TerraCycle for reuse as soft fall mats in outdoor playgrounds and gymnasiums.
It comes after a pilot program launched at Rip Curl’s Torquay store in 2018 was a huge success, with over 2,500 suits recycled and prevented from ending up in landfill. Nationwide expansion will allow many more wetties to be recycled and reused and even more Australians to do their little bit for the environment.
âOne of our core values ââat Rip Curl is community and the environment, and with that in mind, we have spent over three years developing the most efficient and environmentally friendly solution for recycling waste. wetsuits available in Australia today, “Shasta O’Loughlin, Rip Curl’s Environmental, social and governance manager, said of the initiative.
âTerraCycle has an extensive network and was able to help us find the best possible solution for recycling used wetsuit neoprene. We are really excited about this partnership and the reach it can offer across Australia. Once the program has proven itself with us, we are excited to explore global expansion. We want to give all surfers the opportunity to recycle their old wetsuits.
