Diveheart And Lava Rubber Team Up To Tackle Recycled Wetsuits

-

Diveheart and Lava Rubber, a New Jersey rubber recycling facility, have teamed up to tackle the problem of used wetsuits and prevent them from being dumped into a landfill.

Through the initiative, Lava Rubber can convert the suits into a host of useful items. These include:

  • Yoga mats.
  • Coasters.
  • Welcome mats.

The initiative aims to drive the industry toward sustainability and prevent the waste of a good material trapped in an old wetsuit. This, in turn, positively impacts both land-based and aquatic environments.

Check out a video on the effort below.

Recycled Wetsuits help fuel Diveheart's adaptive scuba therapy programs for children, veterans and others with disabilities.
