The New Recycled Tee: Looking Great and Doing Good
Here at COAST Apparel, we’ve decided fans of our clothing and accessories deserve to not only look good but to also be doing good for nature and their fellow man when the items they purchase give back to help keep the oceans we love clear of plastic pollution.
So, what’s old is new again as our talented tailors are busily transforming discarded plastic bottles into one terrific-looking t-shirt. Our newest addition to the COAST IS CLEAR collection – the Recycled Wave Tee – is a remarkably comfortable garment made from 50% cotton and 50% recycled PET polyester, which is a plastic-like material recycled from FIVE PLASTIC BOTTLES that could have otherwise ended up in our oceans or landfills.
Yes, we're talking about the familiar water and soda bottles that bear the #1 recycle symbol. After reprocessing, these bottles magically become the polyester fibers that help give our recycled tee an ideal blend of comfort and wearability.
And, thanks to a tapered neck and shoulder seams, this Mother Nature-approved shirt is guaranteed to fit you to a tee.
“We love everything about the beach – everything but the increasing wave of plastic junk that is clogging up our oceans, littering our coastlines and endangering the animals that rely on the seas for survival. When you buy one of our eco-friendly t-shirts you’re not only improving your beach experience, but you’re also investing in a more sustainable tomorrow," said COAST Apparel president Kerry McLeod.
The Recycled Wave Tee can be purchased exclusively on our website along with other plastic-free items from our COAST IS CLEAR collection, including stainless steel drinking straws, reusable water bottles and shopping bags made of recycled plastic.
And, here’s the best part: We put our money where our mouth is by donating 5% every purchase from this curated collection to organizations that are working hard every day to keep our oceans cleaner!
