Eco- Friendly Wetsuits 2021

At Deeply, we believe that surfers have the innate responsibility to be environmentalists. The ambassadors and the voice of the ocean. Wetsuits being a surfer’s second skin, haven’t always been the most environmentally friendly product. However, over the course of the years, wetsuit brands have become aware of the need for change. We are invested in continuing to develop ever more eco-friendly wetsuits for a greener and less impactful future.

Mineralprene: New Eco-Friendly Neoprene Formula

With the launch of our 2021 winter wetsuit collection, we have introduced our newest and most sustainable neoprene formula to date. Mineralprene is manufactured using neglected oyster shells. The oyster shells are recycled and converted into oxide powder. This enables us to reduce the amount of limestone used in our wetsuit composition. As a result, we yield a more natural and comfortable foam rubber.

We Say No to Fossil Fuels

Eco Carbon black is another major ingredient found in our wetsuits. Tyres being one of the most problematic sources of waste, contain a significant amount of fossil fuel derived carbon black. By recycling these tyres, we are able to incorporate eco carbon black into our wetsuits. This recycling process consumes more CO2 than it emits, reducing CO2 emissions by 72%.  

The Solution is Found in the Cause

At Deeply, we are not only committed to reducing neoprene derived waste, but also in developing neoprene free wetsuits. Our Yulex wetsuit is an eco-friendly neoprene made exclusively from natural rubber. This neoprene alternative contains 63% USDA certified bio-based content. Although our environmental footprint is still far from ideal, we are constantly working towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious business model. Ensuring we have a positive economic, environmental and social impact.
