Is Committed to Helping Preserve the Environment and Our Surroundings
Team Elite is a company made up of a mix that includes young graduates, old graduates, current athletes and recently retired athletes, some very long ago retired athletes, swimming, surf, netball, dance, football and rugby mums and dads - and we all care deeply about the environment. Whenever we can make a decision in our day to day operation, that is a choice which will help improve protecting the world we live in, we will do that.
At Team Elite we use the following initiatives to contribute to helping save the planet:
- We donate an annual $10,000 to help grow a 'coral tree' that will be planted tp the Great Barrier Reef, see logo and link below:
- Have used Paper Carrier Bags since 1997
- Donate all excess clothing and stock from events to charities in Australia and the Pacific Islands for re-cycling.
- Use biodegradable bags for all Swim Caps, Clothing, Face Masks and Towels supplied
- Use 100% recycled SPF 50 polyester for all sublimated garments (ex. PET bottles.)
- Use 100% Latex biodegradable Swim Caps
- Use 100% Silicone Swim Caps - Silicon is a derivative of sand. It is not biodegradable but very inert. It should be re-cycled carefully please.
We are wholehearted supporters of the implementation of renewable energy and also believe renewable energy is something Australia should not lose out on - having the best environment on the planet from which do so.
Please help us to make a difference, and always remember to protect our oceans. Go hug a turtle if you can (don't hurt them!!)
