A reminder that our brilliant partner Simpel’s new wetsuits are live and available for delivery from their website.
Their wetsuits prioritise warmth, comfort and durability, while also using Yamamoto neoprene, which has a longer lifespan than traditional neoprene and is able to be recycled. This also makes for a wetsuit that`s light and flexible.
You can discover more about our wetsuit recycling partnership with Simpel on our website ♻️
We keep moving forward with turning neoprene pre-production waste and end of life suits into new, useable consumer products - as you can see from our before and after photos!
Please contact us if you would like to register interest in the brands that will be bringing product to market in 2024, or would like to get involved. We would love to hear from you and continue the fight to stop neoprene going to landfill or incineration.
Earlier this week, our new partners Bundoran Surf Co. sent us 67kg of neoprene - which we were of course delighted to see! It’s the result of the take-back scheme we set up together, which saw Bundoran receive old wetsuits at their shop before sending them on to us at Circular Flow. They’ll then be made into new products, from wetsuit accessories to yoga mats.
Bundoran are still taking your wetsuits, as long as they were purchased at their shop from 1 January 2021 and are clean and dry. They’ll also be using Circular Flow for their damaged surf school and rental suits, and will have another opportunity for drop-offs in Spring 2024.
Circular Flow is going solar! By the end of November our neoprene recycling facility will be fully solar powered and not reliant on fossil fuel-based energy at all. Pictured are our panels ready for set-up…
We recycle used neoprene in order to dramatically decrease its harmful environmental impact. So it only makes sense that the energy we use to do this work generates, in turn, as little waste and pollution as possible.
A renewable energy source like solar power that does not produce greenhouse gases or air pollution will help us stay committed to ensuring that our effect on the planet is a meaningful and positive one.
It’s such fantastic news that Simpel will be partnering with us, setting up their own wetsuit collection and recycling scheme to help decrease landfill and toxic pollution from neoprene disposal.
If you’ve got a tired old wetsuit or two languishing at home, we’re more than happy to take them off your hands and give you a £10 voucher in return to spend in the Simpel store.
We’re over the moon about this collaboration as Simpel are dedicated to creating wetsuits that are the last word in comfort and performance - but are also durable. They use Yamamoto neoprene, which has a longer lifespan than traditional neoprene, and is able to be recycled. They also work to support a thriving ocean ecosystem through their ongoing collaboration with the Ocean Conservation Trust.

We’re delighted to be launching a wetsuit recycling programme with Snawve!
Sustainability is at the forefront of everything Snawve is about, starting with their use of a natural, regenerative alternative to traditional petrol and mined limestone wetsuits: this partnership is a perfect fit as we help make their offering 100% circular.
You can help us dramatically reduce pollution, waste, and landfill, simply by returning your old wetsuits to Snawve. Here’s how to do it:
1. Order a recycling label 2. Pack and send your old wetsuit 3. Wetsuit is recycled 4. Stop wetsuits going to landfill!

We’re always interested in alternatives to single-use neoprene – and ways of making the water sports industry more sustainable and circular.
So this is great news from Finisterre, one of our fantastic partners. Their launch of the world`s first Yulex wetsuit rental programme hopes to make this environmentally and socially responsible alternative to neoprene more accessible and affordable.
Check out Finisterre’s website for their full range of Yulex swimsuits and wetsuits available for rental.
We are very pleased to announce that DEFENDA are going circular with us!
DEFENDA are an industry leader in the production of world-class superyacht fenders and covers. We are proud to be their recycling partner, helping to make sure that end-of-life neoprene from the sale of their fender covers is recycled via our closed-loop process – meaning zero toxic incineration and zero waste.
