What does GOTS Certified mean?
All Original Weekend t-shirts, sweats and hoodies are fabricated using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton fibres. Organic cotton uses less water, no toxic or harsh pesticide use, avoids GMO and therefore has better health outcomes for workers and for the planet. The GOTS certification not only covers environmental aspects but production and social criteria too, ensuring that it covers the multi-faceted areas of garment creation.
How are eco men's swim shorts made from recycled plastic bottles?
Firstly post-consumer plastic bottles are collected, caps and labels removed, and the bottle is cleaned. It is then heated up and broken back down into pellets, where it is then re-heated and formed into a yarn, ready to weave into fabric. We digitally print this fabric, saving on screen wastage, with unique hand-drawn designs created in-house and craft them into your next favourite pair of sustainable men's swim shorts, ready for your next summer adventure.
Using recycled fabrications not only diverts a valuable resource from landfill, but also uses less energy than virgin (new) polyester, all whilst having a quick dry ability and having long lasting colour and durability. We think it's awesome, because life is better in shorts and the world is better when we recycle!
