Everyone is claiming that we need to live a more sustainable life, but what exactly does that mean? It is a term that is used a lot, but basically what it means is to go about living our lives in a way that reduces our impact on the planet. There are many ways in which you can do that.
The reason that we have decided to adopt a sustainable approach to the manufacturing and production of our gear is simple – we have a deep connection with the ocean and wanted to do what we could to initiate positive change that results in its protection. We also realised that not enough was being done to change the industry. When we think about pollution we envisage coal power plants, exhaust fumes and copious amounts of debris in our waterways. We don’t think twice about the clean t-shirt that is on our back. However, as it stands, the manufacturing industry is once of the worst polluters, coming a close second to the petroleum industry. We realised that it didn’t have to be like this.
We spent many long hours researching ways to establish Panamuna Project as a company that has a social and environmental conscience. We pride ourselves on our ability to inform others of social and environmental issues facing the industry, and we assist the wider community to become more conscious consumers. We are continually innovating our gear and looking for ways to be even more sustainable, in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and build a better world.
