Eco Swimming | Riz Boardshorts
Just having a look at my shopping list for the day ahead; chopped tomatoes, eggs, beer, shaving cream, swimming shorts made out of recycled plastic, bananas…hmmm something isn’t right here…Onion! Phew, I knew I was missing something.
Hang on a tick, swimming shorts made out of recycled plastic, how did that get on the list? Nik!
Well now we’re on the subject, the fine fellows at Riz are trying to achieve just that. A board short which is made from 100% recycled plastic, from our over-polluted seas. It’s a very noble cause, and one which when you research into and watch documentaries on the subject is pretty horrendous. It is our fault after all. Polar bears weren’t cracking open cans of pop before humans came about.
Anyway, Riz are currently crowdsourcing this project, and it’s well worth considering if you’re in the market for a pair of trunks. Anything that helps us clean up those oceans can only be a good thing.
Plus they’re mad floral too, Noel Edmonds is going to be all over them.
p.s. These guys are still raising funds. Check their campaign out on KriticalMass.
