This weekend, we are running a competition in association with new online clothing brand Naeco. If you are heading off to the beach this Christmas, it is one for you.
Two Head for Points readers will each win a luxury pair of swim shorts made from recycled plastic, worth up to £220.
Plastic is a big problem the earth facing and it’s not going to solve itself. The proposed UK ban on plastic straws was a great start, but we do have to do more.
A number of companies are tackling the plastic problem by finding ways of reusing plastic and turning it into something new. One of these companies is Naeco who turn plastic bottles into luxury swim shorts.
Two lucky Head for Points readers can each win a pair from their current collection.
Naeeco is a British clothing company that produces all its items in London using plastic bottles as the raw material. Each pair of Naeco swim shorts is made from 15 plastic bottles. This month their goal is to remove 15,000 plastic bottles from our oceans and landfills.
Founder Zak Johnson says about the brand:
Our aim is simple; to create a luxury brand that shows the world that there is no need to carelessly use our worlds natural resources. We can make clothing from sustainable materials that have a positive impact on our planet.
We take plastic from the ocean and give it a new life as soft luxurious fabric. These are no ordinary swim shorts – these are the best quality swim short we could produce. Our fabric is made from an average of 12 plastic bottles that go through our unique process to make the fabric soft, durable and sustainable.
Our master craftsmen use traditional British tailoring techniques to make the finest swim shorts on the market. You won’t find quality like this for the same price point. Every stitch and piece is expertly put together to give maximum comfort and durability. These are the chinos of the ocean – soft, comfortable and made for life.
