We share a common love for the sea and respect for the environment. It is always within or by the sea that we find inspiration or where we escape to. We are set on providing the European cold water surfers with sustainable products: fit for purpose last.
We are committed to developing our activity in a conscientious manner, therefore establishing sustainability policies across all areas of impact. At our headquarters all waste is separated and recycled. But we are also looking to reduce waste produced: there are no disposable plastic containers for beverages at the office.
Furthermore, we strive to produce a range of products with organic cotton, recycled fabrics, limestone and yulex neoprene.
We aim to design the best possible products fitted to the needs of consumers. In doing so, we hope it will be
better cared for, lasting longer. We also make a deep effort in having a low CFCs
rate by making 80% of our production of lifestyle collection in Portugal.
We always have in mind to make small production series, avoiding stocks. In our product developments the sourcing for
stock left overs of fabrics is always a crucial step so we can give a contribution to wastage reduction in textile industry.
A wide selection of our board shorts are made
with fabrics knitted with polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles certified by Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0. This helps reduce waste and material consumption at the same time. Reduz-se assim desperdício e consumo de materiais, em simultâneo.
Organic cotton farming does not use pesticides, genetically modified organism seeds or chemical fertilizers, which end up in our water systems, food, animals and, ultimately, in our bodies. It preserves biodiversity, restores and builds up the soil and saves a lot of water. We always make effort to have at least 20% of our lifestyle collection in organic cotton and we plan to have a solid increase in each season to achieve a compliance of at least 80% of the cotton we used to be organic.
