Second Life Program:
Our wetsuit recycling program

Give your wetsuit a second life !

Aware of the environmental challenges of the neoprene industry, Soöruz wishes to take responsibility for the end of life of the products it puts on the market.
Soöruz has set up a large-scale recycling program for neoprene wetsuits.
It consists in valuing its used wetsuits and those of its competitors in order to give them a second life.

OBJECTIFS:

In 2021, the goal is to collect and revalue 20 000 wetsuits.
And then, recycle as many wetsuits as the brand puts on the market.

HOW TO RECYCLE YOUR WETSUIT ?

STEP 1 : COLLECTING THE WETSUITS

For this purpose, we have developed wooden wetsuit collectors. These are made available to our partners, such as surf and sailing schools, surf shops, or Wake Park, throughout France and Europe. Riders can come and drop off their wetsuits voluntarily.

STEP 2 : SHREDDING THE WETSUITS

Once collected, the second step of the program consists in grinding the wetsuits to obtain a fine neoprene granulate. This process takes place in our premises in La Rochelle.

ETAPE 3 : THE WETSUITS SECOND LIFE

The granulate is then used as stuffing for cushions, poufs, or boxing bags. This material is available to individuals and professionals. We are currently working on the development of a new material made of cork and crushed neoprene. Other innovations are still to come!
