Save Our Playgrounds by Duotone, ION and Fanatic

The initiative from Duotone, ION and Fanatic aims to protect our environment and to preserve these wonderful places for future generations who also want to enjoy the nature and the stoke of our sports.

Last year, on May 1st, we already called on you to help collect trash from shores around the globe and it was a huge success: Close to one tonne of plastic was collected. From Australia to Europe, from Cape Verde to the USA and even to the far reaches of Russia and Brazil; team riders, sales agents, reps and our friends from ION Club joined forces together with you to contribute to the fight against plastic pollution.

But the plastic problem, amongst other environmental challenges, is unabated. In fact, plastic became one of the most pressing environmental issue of today. According to the UN more than 8 million tons of plastic leak into the ocean each year – equal to dumping a garbage truck of plastic every minute. “We see it as our mission to counteract this development by helping to keep the oceans clean and our earth healthy. After all, this is our home – and not just that, it’s our playground where we can enjoy these incredible sports we all love so much,” says Till Eberle, CEO of the Boards&More company.

That’s why we initiated “Save our Playgrounds” – a platform to coordinate actions by our brands Duotone, ION and Fanatic to protect our environment.  This is paired with steady efforts to minimize our company’s environmental footprint, like reducing plastic packaging, using recyclable materials and stepping up for greener manufacturing processes.  In 2020 we will extend the initiative and organize beach cleanings for multiple days to maximize the effect and to make it easier for everyone to join us - we call to all of you again to help us clean the beaches.

Do you also feel the desire to change something? Just bring a collection bin and meet up with our team riders and lots of other ocean lovers!
