With the growing awareness about the negative impact of wetsuit manufacturing on the environment, more and more new materials and eco-friendly processes have been developed in recent years. The idea of environmental responsibility has finally been taken to the mainstream, allowing for the production of truly innovative wetsuits that perform as well as standard neoprene but are made of sustainable and ethically sound materials.
A wetsuit is an important piece of gear for divers, snorkelers, and surfers alike. The main function of a wetsuit is to keep you warm in the water. So, thanks to its great insulating properties, neoprene has become the primary material used in the manufacturing of wetsuits. That being said, neoprene is basically a synthetic rubber and is not biodegradable, which means that it is better to keep it out of landfills for as long as possible
Taking good care of your wetsuit can make a huge difference in the lifespan of your suit and keep it functioning longer. Besides, it only requires a few easy measures. So let’s go over how to properly clean, dry, and store your wetsuit, as well as list a few things that you should avoid doing if you want your suit to look and feel great.
