Waste to Waves

Waste to Waves is an exciting new program by Sustainable Surf. Waste to Waves recycles lots of different waste materials into new, eco-friendlier surfing products.  The initial launch campaign, you can “Turn Your Trash Into Slash,” by recycling your waste packaging foam, aka “styrofoam”, into new eco-friendlier surfboard blanks.

Drop off your waste packaging foam (technically called Expanded PolyStyrene or EPS) at a local participating Waste to Waves surfshop in Southern and Northern CA.  The campaign will pick it up from there and get it turned into a new recycled EPS/Epoxy surfboard blank.

By participating, you can directly help create “greener” surfboard materials that help reduce negative impacts from surfboard production, and you’ll be diverting this foam/plastic trash away from the waste stream and potentially ending up on our oceans, waves and beaches. The program runs from Nov 22 – Jan 31st.  This program cannot work without your help so, this holiday season, head down to your local participating surfshop to drop off your recyclable “styrofoam” from packaging waste, into a Waste to Waves branded collection box.
