In Pursuit of a Happier Planet

As surfers we demand high quality products, that are ethically produced without compromising on functionality or performance. We acknowledge that as an industry, we have a long way to go to be completely sustainable.  No brand is perfect, no solution is absolute. Our passion lies in the constant pursuit of progress, innovation and positive change.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. That means cleaner manufacturing, bio-degradable packaging, and tangible partnerships that positively impact the environment & communities we live in.

Manufacturing

Manufactured to meet demanding green standards

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.

Blue design system partner

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.

Delivery

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.

Partnerships

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.
