Scubapro expand responsible packaging program

Published

on

Back in April 2021, Scubapro presented numerous steps in the field of sustainable packaging. Now, half a year later, the company is introducing further implementations.

In addition to the already existing plastic-free and recyclable packaging, which has become an integral part of the packaging concept, the company will change the packaging of all computers and instruments to recycled and sustainable packaging from November 2021.

Furthermore, Scubapro is not only focusing on one resource, but plans to vary between the types of materials used for packaging. The market offers innovative materials, and Scubapro will thus switch all small and large spare part bags to packaging made from innovative grass paper in the future.

This material, which is manufactured and sourced in Germany, preserves rare resources, has short transportation distances, saves water and thus ensures a smaller carbon footprint. From now on, all spare parts and small accessories (O-rings, mask straps, etc.) will be delivered in grass paper bags, which can be returned to the recycling cycle for paper and cardboard.

RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING PROGRAMME – ongoing active measures: 

  • Recycled cardboard boxes or protective containers for masks that can be used sustainably for transport and storage of accessories.
  • Boots in fabric bags that can be used for transport and storage as well as a wash or shoe bag.
  • Headbands, neoprene mask straps, gloves and other accessories are delivered on recycled label cards as packaging.
  • Regulators, computers, and regulator maintenance kits are shipped in cardboard packaging without plastic.
  • Fins in recycled cardboard boxes or in mesh bags that can be used for transport and storage or as bags for marine debris when diving.

The complete elimination of plastic and the reduction of total packaging are the goals of the Scubapro Responsible Packaging program. Innovative packaging solutions for more products will be introduced soon.

BARE infuses new Evoke with heat-capturing Graphene

Published

on

Elite immersion-wear designer and manufacturer, BARE, announced earlier this week the release of its newest iteration of the Women’s Evoke Wetsuit, now powered by Graphene Technology.

The new Evoke offers all of the flexible performance and superlative fit of previous models, but now integrates graphene carbon nanostructures that work in tandem with your body to capture and repurpose thermal energy to keep you warmer, for longer.

“The Evoke leverages heat-capturing Graphene Technology to provide enhanced thermal insulation and equalized heat distribution to your entire body,” the company says in a written statement.

By strategically weaving graphene into the core area of the suit, the warmth generated by your body moves from warm areas of the lining to cooler areas for added reflective properties.

Available in 7mm, 5mm and 3mm thicknesses, the newest Evoke promises freedom of movement and enhanced insulation technology to guarantee top comfort and safety on every aquatic adventure.
