Why is there a garbage bag in the new Zag?
Before we answer that, bear in mind that this Friday, 20 June is International Surfing Day, which was started a decade ago by the Surfrider Foundation. Their aim was to get surfers across the globe to take some time out to celebrate surfing, as well as to raise awareness about our ocean playground’s preservation. Keeping your local beach clean is just one of the ways they encourage surfers to take part.
So, back to the question. Why is there a garbage bag in the new Zag?
Well, waves aren’t the only thing we like clean. We like our beaches clean too, which is why we’ve partnered up with our good amigos at Tuffy Bags once more to include a state of the art garbage removal device gratis with the latest issue. And we say that with our tongue only half in our cheek: Tuffy is the only company to make refuse bags from 100% recycled material, using old junk and plastic cleaned out of the environment. So when you fill this sucker up with trash from the beach, you’re completing the vital recycling circle and cleaning your home break at the same time. High five.

Not only do you automatically score a green Noddy badge and the next set wave, but we’re also giving away a massive Ocean Minded hamper worth R5000 including footwear, trucker caps and soft racks to the person who sends us evidence of themselves putting their bags to the best use. Organise a beach cleanup or go solo. Make us laugh, make us nod approvingly, or both. We’re going to be kitting you out for a good cause.
