Since 2013, Soöruz has diligently worked to incorporate environmental considerations into the company’s strategy and product development. Through close collaboration with our suppliers, we have successfully identified and sourced new materials that have a lower impact on our cherished environment, particularly the ocean, and the planet at large.

We don’t claim to revolutionize the world, but rather to make responsible strides in our journey. That’s why we are currently committed to moving in this direction, with the aim of offering you innovative products with significant added value while maintaining complete transparency.

OUR RECYCLING PROGRAM

In 2019, we initiated the Soöruz Second Life program, providing an alternative to the disposal of our wetsuits at the end of their lifecycle. Through this program, we recycle 95% of wetsuits to create new items and secondary materials. You can now drop off your used wetsuits at our retailers, reducing the environmental impact of your practice while giving your suit a second chance.

Our objectives are as follows:

• To recycle as many wetsuits as we produce 

 

• To provide convenient collection points near your location

FOCUS ON DESIGN AND MATERIALS

Soöruz is committed to sourcing materials that have a reduced environmental impact by substituting petrochemical components with organic or recycled alternatives. Leveraging our experience and expertise, we have undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the entire life cycle of our products. This evaluation covers material sourcing, manufacturing, transportation, product use, and end-of-life considerations. Today, environmental considerations are integrated right from the initial product design stage. Our aim is to optimize materials, reduce their environmental footprint, enhance their quality and longevity, and promote recycling.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE ECOLOGICAL INVOLVEMENT OF SOÖRUZ

From the early stages of our journey, we prioritized environmental concerns in the development of our wetsuits. This commitment led to the creation of the first wetsuit made of Yulex and the introduction of technologies such as Black Diamond and Storm Dry.

OYSTERPRENE

OYSTERPRENE is utilized in our most flexible and efficient neoprene materials, which constitute our expert and pro ranges. This innovation involves replacing limestone with a natural, recycled, and renewable powder derived from the grinding of oyster shells. This solution does not compromise the technical performance of our products and simultaneously improves their environmental impact without affecting consumer pricing.

BIÖPRENE

Built upon a foundation of oyster shells, sugar cane, natural rubber, and vegetable oil, we’ve formulated a new recipe for an even more eco-friendly neoprene. This foam is composed of 60% bio-sourced materials, making it our most environmentally friendly wetsuit material. It delivers superior performance compared to the Yulex and Naturalprene materials we previously used.
