Waterproof makes products that enable mankind to witness the conditions we have created in our oceans from the front row. Dead oceans lead to no diving. A fact we can´t hide from. Sustainability must therefore always be the main priority.
Most of the Waterproof suits and accessories are made out of neoprene. Even though neoprene is a material derived from fossil fuels, it offers divers unique qualities. It is extremely durable, which means that a well-designed diving suit will last for years, in many cases decades.
The “green” alternatives currently on the market are not ideal from their point of view. You get an inferior product, with short durability, leading to overconsumption – which they don’t see as true sustainability and not an option for them.
