Give us your old, unwanted wetsuits!

At Hempel World Cup Series Miami, we’ll be collecting old wetsuits and donating them to Suga, the company that designed the world’s first yoga mat made entirely of recycled wetsuits.

Suga reengineered the yoga mat to feel better and perform better, while solving a pressing environmental problem – how to recycle non-biodegradable neoprene wetsuits. Suga spent two years researching and developing a way to recycle wetsuits while improving the performance of the traditional yoga mat. Because Suga mats are manufactured from neoprene, they’re uniquely closed-cell foam, which means they don’t sponge up bacteria, sweat, dust, and dirt from yoga studio floors like other mats. Suga mats maintain their grippiness, whether dry or wet.  They also give non-biodegradable wetsuits a second life by keeping them out of landfills.

When you deliver your old wetsuit to the regatta office at the entrance to Regatta Park, post a picture to your Instagram story and tag @USSailing and #HWCSMiami to enter for a chance to win a free Suga mat of your own!
