It's Earth Month! ūüĆé

Happy Earth Month!

Earth Month takes place during April every year and is a time to raise awareness, encourage positive impacts, and reflect on how far the environmental stewardship movement has come.

Throughout this month, leaders and environmental activists from all over the world come together to create sustainable development and offer climate solutions to minimize our carbon footprint and prevent further harm to the one home we all share.

So join us in celebrating as we partner with some incredible brands and projects aimed at helping the planet in some fun and exciting ways. Make sure to tune in on our social media to find out how you can join us for some #oceanpositive fun, or get a head start and consider planting a SeaTree for yourself, your friends, and your family this Earth Month!

From the Sea to the Shaping Bay

We’ve had a little #seacret in the works for awhile now, and we’re stoked to finally be able to share it with you all.Introducing the latest Sustainable Surf and Protect Blue film - The Seaweed Surfboard. We’re super excited to share this film which documents a rad project happening on a little island called Jersey, in between England & France - where local shapers Charlie Cadin & Ryan Hervé have been experimenting with seaweed. Yep, the stuff you can find on beaches all around the world.

Charlie kicked things off when he shared his incredible seaweed blank (and the amazing backyard methods used to make it happen) with Ryan who jumped in to share his eco board building smarts - and thus The Seaweed Surfboard was born. Not only does this story represent true innovation in the surf industry, but it also reminds us that so often, solutions lie in collaboration - exploring seemingly crazy ideas with like-minded people.
Check out the full film below and take a look at some photos from the Echo Surf Supply Sustainable Fish Fry event, where they premiered a first look at the film!
