Both of these exciting new products can be returned to Peak Paddlesports at their end of life for recycling. We’ll separate the different components and send them to our recycling partners for processing. Sadly, the jackets latex seals currently cannot be recycled.
This new technology and manufacturing method is changing at lightning pace. We are currently in close discussions with many textile recycling partners to find the way to close fully the circular loop. We will update our story as it evolves…
