Scuba.com, a prominent retailer specializing in scuba diving equipment, is excited to introduce a pioneering initiative in collaboration with Diveheart and Lava Rubber. This program aims to repurpose used wetsuits into environmentally friendly goods like coasters, welcome mats, and yoga mats, promoting sustainability efforts.

Partnering with Diveheart, a non-profit organization dedicated to enabling scuba diving experiences for people with disabilities, Scuba.com encourages divers to recycle their old wetsuits. Collection points will be set up at Scuba.com’s retail outlets in Costa Mesa, CA, and New York, NY, where wetsuits will be gathered and sent to Lava Rubber for upcycling on behalf of Diveheart.

Lava Rubber, a company specializing in sustainable rubber products, will transform the collected wetsuits into innovative items. These upcycled products will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds supporting Diveheart’s programs.

To launch the wetsuit recycling program, Scuba.com is announcing a special promotion at the Beneath the Sea Scuba show in New Jersey on March 24th. Attendees will have the opportunity to drop off their old wetsuits, contributing to sustainability efforts while engaging in the scuba diving community event.
