We like Futures Fins for many reasons. Here is another one. In an industry first, Futures Fins are now making their hugely popular Alpha surfboard fin range with NetPlus.
Now made with NetPlus. The Futures Alpha range are made with Bureo’s NetPlus recycled fishing nets. They look good, feel good and now do good.
First Surfboard Fins Made from NetPlus Recycled Fishing Nets
WHY IS REDUCING PLASTIC WASTE SO IMPORTANT?
A staggering 18 billion pounds of plastic waste enter our waterways each year.
Decades of a wasteful, head in the sand mentality means there is now literally an ocean of plastic.
Discarded fishing nets make up a significant portion of this plastic waste - estimated at 10% - and they're also considered to be four times more harmful that all other forms of plastic pollution.
Bureo's NetPlus program provides a tangible, sustainable solution to prevent these harmful discarded fishing nets from entering our oceans.
Among others such as Patagonia and HumanScale, industry leading companies can incorporated Bureo's recycled fishing nets into their supply chains, creating a sustainable solution to the global plastic waste problem.
IMPACT OF BUREO'S NETPLUS RECYCLED FISHING NET PROGRAM
Creating a positive impact since 2013, over 185,000kg of NetPlus materials have been collected to date from 26 participating communities in Chile.
Aligned with end of life incentives, these collections have financed seven community projects supporting sustainable development in coastal communities.
In addition, Bureo provides contributions to non-profit partners through the 1% For The Planet Network, and remains actively involved in the global fight against plastic pollution.
FUTURES FINS ALPHA RANGE ARE THE FIRST SURFBOARD FINS MADE FROM BUREO'S RECYCLED FISHING NETS
Made in Southern California, the Futures Fins Alpha surfboard fins range are now made by incorporating Bureo’s NetPlus recycled fishing nets with Futures’ compound 6 Carbon and Air infused technology.
NetPlus material is sourced from Bureo’s fishing net recycling program in Chile, which provides collection points to keep plastic fishing nets out of our oceans.
