We cherish the ocean, the diversity and beauty of its marine life and the feeling of limitless freedom it provides us. This is why we love snorkelling. There should be no place for plastic in the ocean, but sadly there are clusters of plastics in oceans the size of countries that are causing irreparable harm to marine ecosystems.

Unless we change our mindset to fully embrace sustainability, by 2050 we’ll have more plastic than fish in the ocean, according to a report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

At Ninja Shark we’re doing our best to reduce waste. Our snorkelling gear and accessories are made of plastic in combination with other materials. They can be recycled, which we absolutely encourage you to do.

We have compiled a list of tips to help you recycle your Ninja Shark snorkelling equipment and accessories.

We appreciate that you take the time to learn more about how you can recycle your Ninja Shark products. Your actions matter - recycling is the only way to keep the oceans free from plastic.

Silicone recycling

Silicone is recyclable but the process for recycling it is very expensive. There are only very few recycling facilities in Australia that handle silicone.

We advise you to contact your local council to check if they accept silicone for recycling instead of tossing it in the kerbside recycling bin.

Electronics recycling

It’s important to dispose of electronic waste correctly so that hazardous materials can be treated accordingly, while also ensuring that recyclable components are recovered for reuse. E-waste is filled with toxic materials that could end up in the landfill, endangering the environment and threatening people’s and animals’ health.

If you want to dispose of an unwanted but still functional Ninja Shark underwater action camera the best way is to sell it or donate it.

Other alternatives:

If your snorkelling gear is still usable, you could try other more environmentally friendly alternatives than disposal. You can sell it or donate it to someone who can use it but may not be able to purchase it. We recommend Freecycle or GiveNow if you want to donate your Ninja Shark snorkelling equipment or underwater action camera.
