In collaboration with WDC GRN have a new WDC range of sports clothing, called the ‘Net Positive’ range, which includes cycle gear, a tri-suit, men’s & women’s swimwear, a hoodie and a t-shirt.
GRN’s products use New Life Yarn (which is produced entirely from recycled plastic bottles, and is breathable, wicking, soft, light and fast drying), and Econyl: a high performance nylon which uses recycled fishing nets as one of its waste streams. All of the technical garments are designed and made in the UK, which allows GRN to guarantee ethical production and keeps their supply chains short.
For their t-shirts they also use one of the planet’s most sustainable natural fabrics – bamboo, and organic cotton for their hoodies.
In addition to helping to recycle nets and plastics that may otherwise end up causing harm to whales and dolphins, GRN have also committed to donating 20% of the RRP of each item to WDC, to help support our global work.
“We at GRN sportswear are extremely excited to be working in partnership with the WDC on the Net Positive range. The range has been developed to be high performing, visually appealing and is made from the most technically advanced sustainable materials. We hope that our contributions to WDC will help raise awareness of how we can make better use of the earth's resources and of the need to protect our oceans and the amazing creatures that live in them.” – Rob Webbon, GRN.
