Many consumers are looking for environmentally-friendly ways to celebrate the festive season. At Surfd, we believe that business can be a force for good. There is a whole movement dedicated to what is called stakeholder capitalism: respecting all stakeholders rather than just the bottom line. This movement is called BCorp and many organizations in the surf industry have wholeheartedly embraced this approach to business, with Patagonia leading the way.
When it comes to gifting, we know that may of you want to choose products that are:
Ethically produced – fair supply chains and manufacturing
Environmentally-friendly – low carbon, recycled or repurposed materials
Made to last – fast fashion is an ecological disaster
Look, feel and function with excellence – being sustainable doesn’t mean a product should be boring

Guide to Sustainable Surf Gifts
This year we have produced three gift selections:
gifts for men
gifts for women
gifts for groms (surfer kids)
The gift guide features items from Outerknown, Patagonia, Salt Gypsy, Vissla and many more. If you want to shop in an entirely sustainable surf shop we highly recommend The Someday Co.
Remember: when making your decision, let price be a factor but remember that investing more now often means that the product will last much longer. For example, we at Surfd purchased an Outerknown blanket shirt three years ago and it looks as good (maybe better) than it did when first unwrapped.
Sustainable Christmas Gifts for Men
This year’s Christmas gifts for men list features muted tones, classic lines and a very unique block of wax.
