In a complex world, in turmoil and with numerous and major challenges, ZEUS remains cool and does not take the side of guilt. But that of the action!
PRODUCTS: Each product we develop tends to be the least impact possible for the planet, but also for the wallets of our surfer friends. We therefore choose to only offer products for which we can provide real added value in terms of eco-responsibility and/or in terms of price.
The underside (“slick”), fins and leash plugs of all our boards are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles or waste.
0% plastic packaging, all our packaging has been made of recyclable cardboard or paper since 2020.
Our clothes are made in the North of Portugal and are 100% made of organic cotton and/or recycled materials.
PROTO: Supported and subsidized by the Brittany and New Aquitaine region, we have been working for 2 years and are currently investing in research and development to produce prototype foam boards that are 80% recycled and 100% recyclable. 3 first 100% made in France prototypes were born and surfed the French waves during 2022. Objective: Final prototype validation Autumn <2022 class="">2022>
FACTORY: Upon validation of a final prototype of foam surfboards made in France from natural and recycled materials, we will schedule the opening of the 1st European softboard factory. Objective: Opening 2023!
PLEASURE: Sharing, offbeat, a bit of lightness in this world that is a little too "serious", freedom, adventure, here is Zeus' major daily challenge!
THANKS TO NUMEROUS VISITS TO OUR VARIOUS SUPPLIERS AND RECYCLING FACTORIES IN NEARBY ASIA, OUR BOARDS ARE PARTLY MANUFACTURED FROM RECYCLED OR NON-POLLUTING PRODUCTS. THUS, THE POLYETHYLENE IN OUR BOARDS IS MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC WASTE. THIS INCLUDES THE “SLICK” ASSEMBLY (UNDERBOARDS), THE LEASH PLUG AND THE Daggerboards. AS REGARDS TRANSPORT, WE DO NOT USE ANY PLASTIC PACKAGING (WHILE GUARANTEEING A NEW AND INTACT PRODUCT ON DELIVERY).
WE ARE ACTIVELY WORKING ON THE GRADUAL REDUCTION OF THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF OUR BOARDS (DESIGN, RELOCATION OF PRODUCTION, REPAIR, RECYCLING). THE PROGRESS IS RAPID, WE KEEP A FEW SURPRISES.
ALL OF THE PRODUCTS IN OUR TEXTILE RANGE COME FROM PORTUGAL AND FROM 3 FACTORIES WHICH WE HAVE VISITED SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND WHOSE MODERN FACILITIES OFFER OPTIMAL WORKING CONDITIONS. FOR OUR CLOTHES, WE HAVE LARGELY PREFERRED ORGANIC MATERIALS (NATURAL, NON-POLLUTING), SUCH AS ORGANIC COTTON. THE POLYESTER AND OTHER PLASTIC DERIVATIVES WE USE COME FROM RECYCLED WASTE AND ARE LARGELY IN THE MINORITY.
