FCS Sustainability

1% FOR THE OCEAN

1% FOR THE OCEAN

We’re proud to commit to a better future for the planet we inhabit, and so we’ve made the conscious decision to transition our brand and overall business to a more environmentally conscious and sustainable one.

1% of all of our sales are donated to the preservation of our oceans and to support awareness and activism around environmental issues. This is done via the Gowings Whale Trust, started by John Gowing, our parent company’s owner, who himself is a strong support of the environment and an agent for change.

Of course we can always improve and have several projects in the works to help minimise our footprint.

Here are some of the current initiatives and changes we have made:

FCS Upcycling

UPCYCLED PRODUCTION

50% of our Glassflex Fins are made from regrind material. Post industrial waste from fin production is upcycled into these fins and also used in our X2 and FCSII Econo plugs.

FCS Upcycling

RECYCLED PACKAGING

Both our new H4 and current FCS II fin packaging comes boxed in a paper-based pulp tray (made from old newspapers!) and a recycled PET plastic sleeve. All ink used are soy based which is better for the environment and also makes the paper easier to recycle.

FCS Upcycling

ENVIRO POSTAGE BAGS

In the next few months we are moving all of our online delivered to biodegradable post bags (made from renewable plants) to ensure less plastic polybags end up in the trash.

A SUSTAINABLE LIFE SPAN

A SUSTAINABLE LIFE SPAN

In addition to making our production more sustainable long-term our goal has always been to create products of the highest quality that are built to last.

Extending the life of a product is the most effective way to use less natural resources and create less waste and as we move into the future we continue to approach new projects and development with this in mind.
