*** NEW BAGS IN STOCK ***

by Derek Dodds July 03, 2016

I bought a new razor the other day and it took me 10 minutes to get the item out of the vacuum packaged plastic container.

I nearly cut my hand on the rough edges and was displeased at myself and the manufacturer as I sauntered over to the trash can and placed the plastic wreckage into the can.

Today I came across this statistic:

Over 150,000 tons of packaging are thrown out each day. That's 54,750,000 tones per year—for what?

I understand that we have to make our presentations attractive for customers and also protect the product, but can't we find alternative ways of doing this?

I promise you that Wave Tribe will use less packaging on it's gear and I also urge other companies to think twice before wrapping their goods in plastic.

Have you heard of plastic island?

I would love to see a zero packaging initiative; it starts with you.

I love buying surfboards, and when the editors at Deep told me that this was the Board Buyers issue I got as excited as a Mick Fanning shark attack (sorry, I had too), We all love that feeling of new foam under our feet and it’s likely the thing we talk about most with our bros while drinking beer and reminiscing about all those waves we caught down in Costa Rica last season.
