Body Glove ECO – Environmentally Friendly Wetsuits
Following in Patagonia’s treehugging footsteps, Body Glove is releasing their ECO wetsuit, made from snappily named eco-flex and bio-stretch. The Eco-flex exterior is “the purest form of non toxic stretch material on the planet.” I’m not sure what that means, but it is supposedly non-petroleum based and “100% environmentally friendly.” The mid later, Bio-stretch, is made from natural rubber, and the “interior of the ECO is 100% non-petroleum calcium carbonate closed cell foam rubber. Sounds promising, we surfers have another choice in environmentally friendly wetsuits, plenty of catchy marketing words, an odd photo shoot with a surfer in a jungle, and a maybe touch of greenwashing as well.
