RIZ BOARD SHORTS

We have been stocking Riz Board shorts for a few years now so we thought it was time to share a little about what they do (in case you didn't already know). It's well documented that our oceans are overrun with plastic waste, and Riz is on a mission to help that. 
 
'The oceans are the lifeblood of our planet, and they are also the source of our inspiration and our playground. We know only 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 donate £1 from every pair of our shorts sold to help fund their important ongoing efforts to protect our marine environment.'
As well as this every pair of shorts is made from 100% recycled material (plastic bottles), which means that every pair of shorts is also 100% recyclable - Not only that but Riz offers a 25% discount off your next pair of shorts if you send your unwanted shorts back to be repaired, recycled or rehomed.

'FOR US SUSTAINABILITY SEEMS TOO GENERAL A TERM. WE WANT TO FOCUS
THE ENTIRE PRODUCT LIFE INTO A 360 DEGREE PROCESS'

This season Riz has launched recyclable envelopes that their shorts arrive in. As a customer, you probably wouldn't know this, but almost all of our clothes arrive in store individually wrapped in clear plastic poly bags. This is something we have no real control over, so it's amazing when brands do something about it. 

So now all Riz board shorts come in recycled paper envelopes, better for the environment and better looking as well- Win win!
