Sustainable eco design from plastic bottles of women's board shorts and men's swim shorts.
Marine Conservation Society
The oceans are the lifeblood or our planet, and they are also the source of our inspiraiton and our playground. We only know too well how fragile they are and how badly they need protecting which is why for several years now we have been supporting the work of the Marine Conservation Society (MCS). Along with partnering with them at beach clean events we are so proud to directly donte £3 from every single pair of Riz shorts sold to help fund their important ongoing efforts to protect our marine environment..
For every pair of shorts sold
we donate £3 directly
to Marine Conservaion
We don't want our shorts littering landfills or oceans. So, in
an effort to do our part we've set up the Rizcycling programme
This means working with our customers, you, to create a perpetual loop that transforms waste and old swimwear into beautiful new products.
Today all our shorts are made from 100% recycled and recyclable fabrics. By offering a 25% discount on a new pair of shorts, we encourage you to donate your old unwanted surf shorts for us to reuse or rehome.
We grew up around the ocean, it is our inspiration and our muse. The simple fact that we make a product that needs to be quick drying means that we have to use plastics but we don’t want to make products that pollute the sea.
We are working with The Marine Conservation Society and other partners to hold beach clean-ups where we hope to gather up- to 50,000 plastic bottles. Watch out for more in the space.
Our ultimate aspiration is to turn ocean and beach plastics,
the water bottles that end up floating in the sea
or littering beaches, into swim shorts
We are working with fabric manufacturers and other brands to figure out how this process can work so that soon, our first short can be made from ocean plastics.
