CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Psyched Paddleboarding are passionate about protecting the environment. We want to help to inspire and educate others to do the same. At Psyched Paddleboarding we do our upmost best to minimise our impact on the environment. Below are some of things we do to help:

  • We use Starboard as they are the most environmentally conscious paddleboard brand on the market (plan a tree for every board sold, pay money to a tax, provide litter pick hooks, paper and cardboard packaging, paddle bags made from recycled plastic bottles on the beach, partnered with Parley,  they pay taxes to help fund beach cleans across the globe)

  • We are a Plastic Free business using the Surfers Against Sewage Community Grassroots Toolkit

  • Where we can we use local milk in glass bottles

  • We encourage our paddlers to get involved with litter picks

  • We have banned the use of single use plastic bottles on sessions

  • We provide reusable mugs for our refreshments

  • We wash our kit in Ecover and use a refill system

  • We wash our kit in Guppy Bags to reduce micro plastic fibres washing out into the water system

  • We offer Refill to our paddlers

  • We are a Surfers Against Sewage business member

  • We are the North Wales Wildlife Trust business member

  • We educate our paddlers about leave no trace

  • We educate our paddlers about sensitive habitats in Snowdonia

  • We educate our paddlers on the guided tours about the marine code

  • We educate our night paddlers about light pollution
