Carbon Offsetting Surfboards: DECARBONATED
The production of a typical UPR shortboard emits around 170Kg - 200Kg of CO2. Decarbonated Sports has been established so that surfers can offset the carbon foot print of their surfboards.
1. Use the calculator available on the website to determine the carbon foot print of your surfboards (select shortboard, longboard, size etc)
2. Offset the carbon emissions by paying a small amount that will go towards reducing carbon emissions in other areas, E.g. tree planting projects and building low carbon renewable energy power plants.
It is not a 'solution' to the problem but it sure is a positive option for those who want to do something about the environmental impacts of their surfboard.
