O’Neill makes a move to protect our oceans from plastic
O’Neill founder, Jack O’Neill, created the first wetsuit in 1952 in order to keep himself out in the water for longer surf sessions. The technology stuck and launched a whole new chapter in the history of surfing.
Today, O’Neill wetsuits is a brand dedicated to the sustainability of our oceans. The very oceans and waves that created the O’Neill legacy are under threat from a tsunami of plastic waste. This tragedy is the inspiration behind O’Neill Blue – an initiative in the form of an Active Wear line to producing sustainable surfwear using high performance eco-threads by Bionic, which contain recycled beach plastic.
We, at Standup Journal Online, herald the news that an industry leader like O’Neill is committed to protecting the planet and raising awareness about ocean plastics!
