Sustainable Board Shorts made from recycled plastic recovered from the ocean

We are GiLo Lifestyle, a premium sustainable fashion and lifestyle brand. Our shorts are made from regenerated ocean plastic and make with every decision having the highest regard for the hands that create our clothes and the world we call home.

Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans. That is a total of 12 million tonnes a year, equivalent to a truck load a minute.

There is an island of plastic in the pacific ocean called the great pacific garbage patch, this island of plastic covers an estimated surface of 1.6 million square kilometres , which is approximately three times the size of France. If we do nothing , it is said that by 2050 there will be no fish in the sea . The ONLY plastic floating in the ocean should be your swim shorts, with you wearing them and enjoying the oceans embrace.

WE NEED TO SHIFT OUR AWARENESS. It is not okay to destroy our oceans. At GiLo we are dedicated to fighting this issue.

GiLo Lifestyle’s focus is on sustainable clothing that’s soft, comfortable, light, fast-drying and long lasting. We believe that one’s wardrobe should be an investment, and that less is more when it comes to your closet. For us, this means buying fewer but better pieces, made to last, from brands you want to support.

The ocean is our responsibility, what happens to it impacts on all of us. By recycling plastic bottles from the ocean we are achieving this, while saving our oceans and marine life at the same time.

Our Commitment: Sustainability means responsible innovation. We create products by making every decision with the highest regard for the environment and the people we work with.
