Do good, feel good, go Blank.
Project Blank is founded on conscious, honest decisions, and blends quality and affordability with environmentally considered products. And we’re always looking for ways to move forward sustainably and transparently, so if you have any suggestions or want to partner with us, please get in touch
Caring for the planet at every turn
From product design, chosen materials and manufacturing methods to our packaging, delivery and partnerships, sustainability is at the very centre of our ethos.
Every order placed helps our planet. Project Blank is dedicated to meeting its environmental goals by 2022. See how we’re getting on with your help!
We plant one tree with every order. We aim to plant 20,000 trees worldwide by 2022
We remove 1.2kg rubbish from the ocean with every order! By 2022, we aim to remove 24,000kg
We offset 10kg carbon with every order in an aim to offset 200t by 2022
Consciously branded blank
Most premium surf supplies that are sustainable can get overwhelmingly expensive and sometimes compromise functionality. But more affordable options typically skimp on quality and are less ethical. Project Blank products blend affordability, functionality and sustainability. Our ‘blank’ branding equals timeless style (no need to replace your gear every year) and reduces the use of toxic inks.
Made from sustainably sourced materials
Every single product has been designed to do a little better for the planet while remaining flexible, warm, durable and affordable.
Dope Dyed Yarn
Made in sustainable bluesign® approved fabric mills, Dope Dye Yarn is non-toxic and has been treated with an anti-fade colouring treatment. It’s use reduces Co2 emissions by 2.7kg or 24% per wetsuit.
Water Based Lamination Glue
This water-based glue replaces traditionally harmful solvent-based chemicals.
Carbon Black Recycled Rubber
Rubber made from recycled car tyres reduces landfill waste and significantly reduces energy consumption and Co2 emissions by 72%.
Instead of using harmful petroleum-based chemicals, calcium carbonate from limestone is used as a greener alternative.
All Project Blank surf supplies are manufactured in a green facility equipped with solar panels. This green energy generates over 6 million kilowatts of energy per year, saving 130,834 trees every year and over 7 million kg Co2 so far.
As a bluesign® System Partner, our manufacturing facility ensures sustainable textile production, meeting the world’s most demanding textile standards as it relates to energy, water and chemical usage.
The use of its innovative fabric dyeing machines reduces water and energy usage by 60%, while its dying process conserves 104l water and reduces its carbon footprint by 26% per kg of fabric.
To drastically reduce landfill, we use neoprene made from recycled car tyres. And over 5,000kg leftover neoprene waste every year is turned into qualified products, eliminating our own landfill contribution further.

Packaged in plants, not plastic
Packaging is made to throw away, so it’s important we don’t use any plastics (which can take up to 1000 years to break down). Instead, our biodegradable bags are made from plant-based materials like cornstarch and wheat, which break down in 3-6 months. Keeping your order safe and sound, these bags are securely packaged in recycled cardboard which can be recycled easily from home.
Partnered for positive change
While we’re proud of our own green initiatives, we know we’re greater together. To accelerate positive change, we’ve joined forces with some incredible sustainable projects giving back to the planet.
