With an increasing recognition of the environmental challenges that we are facing, we teamed up with The Pickwell Foundation in 2018 to encourage greater consideration for the environment as an event, and for the competitors taking part. After the success of making Croyde Ocean Triathlon the first plastic free event in the UK, since 2019 we have focused on reducing the carbon footprint of the event.

Our sponsor, Presca Teamware, take products such as end of life plastic bottles and fishing nets, and creates high performing custom sportswear with a better bak story. They are striving to be the world’s most sustainable and environmental sound sportswear on the market – and we are proud to be working with them for the 2020 Croyde Ocean Triathlon.
Zoggs has also developed a new range of swimwear, Ecolast™, which begins its life as plastic waste which would otherwise cause damage to our planet, oceans and marine life. They are working to ensure 100% of their goggle packaging is sustainable by 2020.
We also teamed up with Stop Micro Waste! to get GUPPYRIEND microfilter washing bags as prizes for the event. Visit their website to see how you can cut down your micro plastic pollution when washing your kit.
