OUR SPORTS DO NOT POLLUTE WHEN THEY ARE PRACTICED, BUT HOW OUR GEAR IS CREATED AND MANUFACTURED CLEARLY HAS AN IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT. WE HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE THE NECESSARY EFFORTS TO OFFER AN INCREASINGLY SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT WITH EACH COLLECTION, WITHOUT SACRIFICING QUALITY OR PERFORMANCE.
At MANERA, we decided not to base our marketing on the "eco-friendly" aspect, because our strength lies in the performance of our products. Every company must strive to offer less harmful products. This must become the norm.
Our desire has always been to produce durable, high-performance, timeless products. We think this is the best way for us to be more environmentally friendly, but also to conduct business and to be proud of our work.
Our products last over time; they do not go out of fashion after six months. We have very few after-sales service requests (less than 0.3% on our harnesses for example). We do not overproduce to then sell everything at knock-down prices, and we only sell to specialized shops. Therefore, the basis of our business is sound.

THE SECOND LIFE OF OUR WETSUITS
Reparetacombi.com is a 100m² workshop dedicated to the repair of neoprene wetsuits (surf, kite, SUP, etc...). In one click, we offer to repair your wetsuit wherever you are in France.
The workshop is equipped with four industrial sewing machines and dozens of square meters of neoprene of all kinds and thicknesses. We repair almost everything: seams, tears, zippers, zipper sliders, neck seals, etc... Our repairs are based on the original construction of the man
ufacturers in order to respect the technical aspects (waterproofness, sealing tape, frontzip...) Generally, we work with more current wetsuit than old ones. Indeed, the older the neoprene is, the more complicated it is to repair. We also carry out special requests to alter and adapt the wetsuit to the morphological needs of the customers. We offer our services to individuals as well as brands, manufacturers, and surf shops all over France. Transport is included to and from the shop at an affordable price.

NEOPRENE RECYCLING / MANERA X CIRCULAR FLOW
This new partnership hopes to address the neoprene waste problem by collecting wetsuits and neoprene items at local shops to then turn them into new and useful neoprene products.
As a first step, we are launching this recycling program in select shops around France. Our goal is to collect and recycle between 2 000 and 2 500 wetsuits in 2023. Down the road, our main objective is to achieve neutrality and recycle as many wetsuits as we produce.
MANERA invites you to drop off your end-of-life or redundant wetsuits from any brand at any of our partner's shops during their opening hours.
Our goal is to inspire people to get out of their homes and into the water no matter what the conditions. This often involves us moving around, which has an impact on the planet.
On our last trip to Kamchatka, Russia, we took steps to reduce global carbon emissions by offsetting 100 tons of carbon emissions.
On each of our MANERA trips, we will commit ourselves to have the smallest impact possible on the planet which is, today, our most beautiful playground.
GREEN TOUCH / WORLD CLEAN UP DAY
September 19th was World clean-up day. MANERA took the lead and gathered a small group of people to collect the trashes on a local beach.
We know we won’t save the planet with our little jute bags, but it is more about inspiring, setting an example, and encourage people to throw their cigarette butts in a trash.
We’ll keep you informed of the next clean-up on our @manerawatermen page.
Let's stay green.
