If we’re going to save this planet, we’ve got to get serious about our environmental efforts like reducing single use plastic, cleaning the oceans, and building a more sustainable lifestyle. This is what Paul Strike and Jim Standing have set out to do with their company, Fourth Element. They met during a dive in the Red Sea in 1999. When they went out for a beer afterwards, they got to chatting about what they like (and didn’t like so much) about scuba diving. The dislike that stood out between them was that neither of them had yet found a dive suit that kept them warm enough during cold water dives to be fully comfortable. Right then and there, they discovered the opportunity to begin creating quality thermal dive gear, and thus Fourth Element was born. Now based in the United Kingdom, Paul and Jim have discovered groundbreaking technologies in thermal protection so that everyone can have more enjoyable and warmer dive experiences no matter what waters you’re in. On top of all that, Fourth Element is dedicated to making sure you’re buying dive gear that you’re confident isn’t harming the planet (all the way from the product to the packaging!).
