Surf's Up for Riz's Recycled (And Recyclable) Board Shorts for Men
Finally, an alternative to fast-fashion beachwear. Riz Boardshorts , the brainchild of surfer and swimwear designer Riz Smith, crafts its boardies from 100 percent recycled and recyclable polyester. Digitally printed using water-based, earth-friendly inks, Riz’s shorts can be returned, recycled, and reintroduced back into the loop through the company’s “Rizcycling” program . When you’re ready for your next pair, just send your old ones back to be recycled into new polyester yarn . A percentage of Riz’s sales goes to the charity Surfers against Sewage , an environmental group that campaigns for cleaner coastlines.
