Our new recycled boardies which is included in our second summer range is now available (instore from May 08). What are those Recycled Boardies ? Billabong has developped an exclusive fabric called Eco-Supreme Suede. This is made from recycled textiles and plastic bottles. To create the recycled boardies, bottles are collected and have their caps and labels removed before being granulated and dried. Then, through a process nown as polymerization, the plastic flakes are made into a polyester fibre, which is then used in the fabric to make the boardies. Approximately 10 plastic bottles are used to create one pair of boardies. They’re just as functional as our other boardies but come with the added benefit of giving something back to our environment. Enjoy !
