Welcome to the new site and our news/blog section. We will be updating this section with all things Neptunic on a regular basis so please keep checking in. News, TV, Travel, Photo Shoots — if we're doing it, we're sharing it.
Neptunic has a long history and a dedicated following around the water, and as many of you know, there have been a lot of changes in the last year. Among them is Neptunic's move towards developing water-related apparel and gear. We very much still create Neptunic Sharksuits, and have recently redesigned our suits with the help of our partners at Mailletec. Our history and legacy as the leaders in anti-shark bite technology will continue to be the cornerstone of how the Neptunic brand was created. The development of this technology continues today, not only in the traditional chainmail and titanium, but also in textiles and neoprene.
The most important change, as a company, is our commitment to conservation, which not only begins with the production process of our soft goods, but also with our recent partnership with 1% for the Planet. Created in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet companies have given more than $100 million back to environmental activism in the last 10 years. A lot of thought went into our decision and we are really proud to be part of the 1% family. You can see the 1% banners at the bottom of most of our webpages — I encourage you to click on one of them and check out their site. There's a rich history and a collection of worldwide companies, of all sizes, coming together to make a difference.
Finally, thanks to everyone for the overwhelming support over the last year, and in the interest of keeping these posts short and to the point...
