Guys, I told you not to feel left out! You too can be eco-friendly oceanside with these environmentally friendly swimsuits, board shorts, and beach pants. Made from recycled materials and organic silks, these rockin’ trunks will look great without impacting the planet! Surf’s up!
Billing itself as the world’s finest swimwear made from recycled materials, Faherty Brand seems to live up to its word! Their variety of mens’ options include all-day shorts, board shorts, and swim trunks. The founders are twin brothers Mike and Alex Faherty, who explain that this brand is their lifelong dream – a clothing company that uses ethically sourced and environmentally sound premium materials, with a focus on unwavering craftsmanship. They’re socially conscious as well – 1% of all sales go toward helping local beaches recover from Hurricane Sandy!
When I think Nautica, I think all-American sportswear, not necessarily eco-friendly fashion. But the brand is trying to change that – their 2013 men’s swimsuit collection contains 6 different eco-friendly swim trunks! Each item of clothing is made purely from recycled plastics and fabrics, and “supports the environment without abandoning style.”
Perfect for a sunbather who doesn’t want to get his feet wet, the Katharine Hamnett Beach brand is made from 100% organic silks. These military style silk pants are eco-friendly and fashionable, bringing Old Hollywood glamour to the shore.
Ok, but say you DO want to get wet! Greenlines’ products are made from 100% recycled polyester. The board shorts come in a variety of styles and colors, including some fun preppy-striped pairs. Additionally, Greenlines donates a percentage of its profits to local grass roots efforts as well as national and global organizations that they feel make the most positive and significant impacts on the beaches and marine life their customers enjoy. I just love companies like that! They also welcome suggestions for new recipients, so if you have an ocean conservation group you love, send it on in!
Ok guys, hope that helped! Can’t wait for you to rock those eco-friendly trunks – see you poolside!
