Octo comes free with Scubapro reg systems
Scubapro, which started giving away undersuits with selected drysuits a fortnight ago, has sprung another springtime offer: a free S270 or R105 octopus with every purchase of one of 10 regulator first and second-stage combinations.
The free S270 comes with purchases of a Scubapro MK25 EVO or MK19 EVO combined with a D420 or S620Ti second stage.
The R105 octo comes if you buy a MK25 EVO or MK17 EVO with an S600 second stage; a MK25 EVO or MK19 EVO with a G260; or a MK19 EVO BT or MK25 EVO BT with a G260 CARBON BT. The offer applies whether international or DIN versions of the regulators are chosen.
Recommended retail price for the S270 octopus is 295 euros (£260), while the R105 normally costs 260 euros (£229).
Scubapro says it offers a 30-year first-owner warranty on all regulators, with a revision period of two years or 100 dives. The free octo offer is open until 31 July from participating dealerships, though it might not be available in all regions.
Every Fourth Element order means a planting
UK dive-gear manufacturer Fourth Element says it is now planting a tree or mangrove for every online order placed. Its new “Plant for the Planet” carbon-reduction initiative aims to promote sustainable environmental practices.
The plantings will be carried out through a partnership with climate-action platform Ecologi, which Fourth Element says will ensure that the plantings form part of verified reforestation projects designed to have a positive impact on local communities and biodiversity.
Trees, and mangroves in coastal areas, absorb carbon dioxide, provide oxygen and support biodiversity, but both face threats from deforestation and development. “We believe that it is our duty as a business to take action and make a positive impact on the planet,” says Fourth Element CEO Paul Strike.
“We are taking steps to offset our carbon footprint and support reforestation and mangrove restoration projects, which are critical for the health of our oceans and the planet as a whole.”
TONIC FOR SEAGRASS: It’s not exactly dive-gear – in fact it should be strictly for post-dive application – but drinking it is in good dive-related cause. Each bottle of Ocean Edition Plymouth Gin sold is now contributing £1 to the Ocean Conservation Trust’s work protecting and restoring UK seagrass meadows. The limited-edition gin is sold in the UK in Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Waitrose and Morrisons.
