Sustainable Surf: sustainability in action
This post I wrote originally appeared on Care2.com:
Care2 recently published a post about the greening of the surfing industry, in which we briefly mentioned Sustainable Surf.
Sustainable Surf is a newer nonprofit based in Southern California that helps the surfing industry and community become examples of sustainability in action. The organization recently launched a new program called Waste to Waves.
The program’s first campaign is “Turn Your Trash Into Slash,” meaning you can give the organization your styrofoam and a Southern California company Marko will turn it into new surfboards. Partner stores in Northern and Southern California have receptacles available for customers’ use, and at least one school group, 7th Grade science class at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School, ran a drive to collect community members’ styrofoam for recycling by Waste to Waves.
