Plastic? No thanks!

Plastic? No thanks!

We are over plastic on our beaches and in the line up here at Surfdome and Magicseaweed, so we’re taking action!

Around 8 million tonnes of plastic is dumped in our oceans every year, that’s a rubbish truck every minute, and it’s killing our ocean life, making our favourite place a toxic soup of plastic waste. So we have eliminated 14 tonnes of plastic from our operations annually.

We love the oceans as much as you do, so its up to us to tackle the marine plastic crisis happening right before our eyes. We can’t wait for legislation or governments to solve this for us, we all vote everyday of our life’s through the choices we make as consumers. It’s up to us to choose and support products or business that are reducing plastic waste, making our voices heard every day!

At the beginning of 2015 we switched almost all our packaging to plastic free (we are working on the final pieces)
