What do I do with my leftover Styrofoam?

Do you ever wonder what you can do with that Styrofoam packaging from your recent electronic purchase? 

Here is the answer! There are a few drop off locations in Santa Cruz that use the Styrofoam to make new surfboards.  The program is called Waste to Waves.

The drop off locations include:

O'Neill Surf Shop
1115 41st Ave. 
Santa Cruz, CA 

Rip Curl Santa Cruz Outlet
1604 Mission St.
Santa Cruz, CA

Rip Curl Santa Cruz
753 41st Ave. 
Santa Cruz, CA

Stretch Surfboards
983 Tower Place
Santa Cruz, CA

There are also donation boxes at various locations in San Francisco, Ventura/Santa Barbara, LA County, Orange County and San Diego County.

Waste to Waves can not take:

Styrofoam that is contaminated by food
Styrofoam packing peanuts (but you can donate these to your local UPS store)

Broken surfboards (but these can be donated to rerip.org instead)
