It’s Earth Day! And not only that but the theme for Earth Day this year is “Restore our Earth,” which according to Earthday.org, “focuses on natural processes, emerging green technology and innovative thinking.” To be honest I didn’t even know Earth Day had a yearly theme until I was googling “Earth Day 2021” last night to make sure it actually was today. But restoring the earth with green technology is quite a fitting theme for the topic of this article.
It’s no secret that surfing products aren’t always great for the environment.
