If you’re using this time to work on your Spring Cleaning, you’re not alone! Surfrider DC is working to upcycle used outdoor and watersport gear. We will be sending old wetsuits to Lava Rubber, a company in New Jersey that repurposes them to make recycled yoga mats and coasters.

We will also be hosting an outdoor and watersport gear swap, where you can bring your used recreational clothing and gear to swap with other members, or to donate to local outdoor nonprofits.When we’re able to get together, Surfrider DC will host an event for folks in the DMV to drop off wetsuits and swap other gear, and we’ll send them over to Lava Rubber or other local outdoor recreational groups.
