Here at Pride Bodyboards, we incorporate 40% of Recycled Premium Malaysian rubber in all our swim fins produced after September 2019.
Most of the fins in the bodyboarding industry comes from natural rubber. So do ours. Some people say it’s ecological, because it comes from Hevea trees. Nonetheless, Hevea trees required vast amounts of land to create those swimfins, which means the reduction of land available for rainforests and therefore, biodiversity. By reducing the amount of raw natural rubber we use in our fins, we also reduce the superficies of land needed to create our products. Land that would be free for biodiversity to thrive.
We use a unique formula that has been developed by committed scientists to enable reincorporating solid rubber in the conception of brand new fins. We only recycle rubber that haven’t been used before by the end consumer. For instance, we won’t recycle old tires that would result in lower quality products. We collect premium natural rubber from factory that usually ends up being trashed before ever being used.
We’re the only bodyboarding company to incorporate recycled content in our fins. By incorporating 40% of recycled premium natural rubber in our fins, we can guarantee that our fins are still the best quality available on the market while making a real impact on the environment. We can guarantee that their design and colors are still as good or even better than our competitors and that they float.
In total, we will save more than 1.8 tons of rubber per year. We could go even further with your support.
“The average yield from rubber plantation is expected to be 375 kg per hectare annually if the trees are grown from seedlings” extract from www.agrifarming.in
This project will allow us to save around 4,85 hectares of land to be cultivated in Southern-Easter Asian countries.
