First Recycled Scuba Diving Garment Introduced
In what is being billed as one of the diving industry’s first “Eco-Friendly” product, Diving Unlimited International (DUI) has introduced a new undergarment that is produced with 75 percent recycled materials.
DUI’s ECODiveWear is made with Polartec PowerDry and is designed to be worn underneath the traditional drysuit undergarment that divers typically wear in colder waters. The suit provides added warmth and moisture-wicking properties for divers.
According to Susan Long, DUI President, “Divers are very concerned about the environment. We selected this particular material to use in these liners as a way to do something to continue to protect our world’s resources.”
Long said that to her knowledge, DUI is the first company to introduce an “eco-friendly” product, but that since it is such an important concern, that others in the dive industry would also likely begin introducing “eco-friendly” products.
DUI’s ECODiveWear dive-liners are not only highly effective for scuba diving, but the product can also be worn in other recreational or outdoor environments. For more details, visit the DUI website at http://www.dui-online.com/dw_ecodivewear.html
