FreezeCycle: Wetsuit Recycling Scheme

FreezeCycle Wetsuit recycling Banner

Have you ever wondered what to do with an old wetsuit? 

If you’re local to Edinburgh, then you may have heard about Freezecycle, our wetsuit recycling scheme, over the past few months. We’ve been collecting old and used wetsuits and donating them to Loved&Upcycled for repurposing. In return, recyclers get a 10% discount off a new wetsuit from Freeze, and 15% off any product from Loved&Upcycled.

After the success of the scheme in the local area, and the positive feedback we’ve received, we’ve decided to launch the program across the UK. Send us your old wetsuit and get cash off a new one!

How to recycle old neoprene wetsuits

Neoprene is a non-biodegradable material. As a result, it’s very difficult to dispose of an old neoprene wetsuit responsibly. Neoprene can take centuries to degrade in landfill sites and releases harmful toxins and waste into the environment. Old wetsuits can be recycled in several ways but save yourself the hassle – FreezeCycle will take your used neoprene and re-purpose it. Read on to find out more.

Freezecycle UK-wide Wetsuit Recycling Scheme

The unfortunate fact about neoprene products is that they take a very long time to degrade. A very long time. So, to try and combat the quantity of wetsuits ending up in the ground we’ve launched Freezecycle. The concept is fairly simple: we’ll take your old wetsuit and upcycle it, and you get 10% off any new wetsuit for taking the trouble to send it to us.
