Greenprene™ Insulating Foam
Greenprene® is a sustainable,
insanely warm, super stretchy, ultra-durable insulating foam that
provides excellent UV resistance. Greenprene® is also significantly lighter in weight than traditional neoprene materials. Greenprene®
is 100% neoprene free sustainable insulating foam. It has been tested
and is approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Bio Preferred® program as a USDA Biobased product. Greenprene®
is formulated from deproteinized natural rubber along with other
natural additives such as sugar cane, plant oils and oyster shells. The
result is a sustainable Bio Based insulating foam that is ultra-soft,
stretchy, durable and light weight. Greenprene® wetsuits will
allow you to move freely without restriction while keeping you warm and
comfortable in the most demanding conditions.

The entire Greenprene® wetsuit program has been designed to provide a fully sustainable product lifecycle. Greenprene® wetsuits are packaged and shipped in recycled cardboard boxes.

NEOPRENE ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES.
Allergic reactions from wetsuit use can
be caused by a wide variety of materials that go into building a wetsuit
and ultimately contacting your skin. Allergic reactions that are caused
from Neoprene may not present themselves when using Greenprene® wetsuits, the only way to confirm this is to consult with your doctor and do a test.
