Rhiz Smith and Ali Murrell, founders of Rhiz Boardshorts, have made it their mission to develop board shorts that are made entirely out of recycled ocean plastics. From the lining to the chord and zipper, all materials will be taken from the ocean and placed onto your hips.
Rhiz Boardshorts have also been working on Rizcycling, an initiative where a perpetual loop is created so that customers can send in their old pair of board shorts to claim 25% off a new pair, allowing them to keep up to date with trends and fashion.
As well as this, 10% of the profit will be going to the Marine Conservation Society to help preserve marine wildlife.
Surfing is growing as a sport as more powerhouse companies join in to sponsor and support some of the major athletes. Rhiz Boardshorts are leading the charge in sustainable surfwear and are allowing surfers to become a catalyst for change, to preserve our one and only playground -- the Ocean.
