60 million. That’s the number of plastic bottles to-date that Billabong globally have re-used to produce their latest line of boardies using recycled, lightweight stretch fabrics, known as the Recycler Series.

Each year, millions of plastic bottles end up in the ocean or as landfill. Billabong, in a continued push to reduce PET waste, gives this plastic a new life by turning it into board shorts. Just one pair of these recycled board shorts saves approximately 25 PET bottles. And if that’s not enough, these limited edition board shorts have been given the style stamp of approval by some of the worlds top surfing champions like Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and Jack Freestone.

Thanks Billabong!
