Green Surfing: Carbon Offsets
Tip #4: De-carbonate your surfing.
While all this week's tips hopefully lead to this purpose, there's now a single resource for surfers to really study and reduce their impacts.
UK company Decarbonated Sports's mission is to reduce the carbon footprints of our favorite outdoor sports. Its website is full of informative tips on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle within those sports, with a particular emphasis on investing in eco-friendly gear.
Co-founders Rick and Matt are surfers with degrees in surf science and environmental management, respectively, and both are members of the UK's Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, giving them street cred when helping businesses go carbon neutral and hopefully having other surfers and shapers follow suit.
