Premium apparel expert Galvin Green has become the latest golfing brand to join efforts to improve sustainability, by introducing a new line of long-lasting Insula warm layer garments, which are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.
The latest version of Galvin's stylish, comfortable Dwight sweater is made from 100% recycled polyester, coming from as many as 17 litre-sized plastic bottles.
The durable, stretchy half-zip delivers thermal insulation along with breathability in six different colour choices. The rest of the range includes Insula garments from the same recycled material, such as the Damie full-zip and Drake half-zip sweaters, along with the women's Davina full-zip jacket and Diane hoodie.
Galvin Green CEO, Nicholai Stein, commented:
"Sustainability is part of the Galvin Green DNA and the new recycled polyester Dwight sweater reflects that fact perfectly. There is no compromise on the comfort or performance levels and it spearheads the new sustainable garments that we plan to introduce on a larger scale in future."
"We always set out to introduce cutting edge technologies to maximise a golfer's performance, while at the same time, looking to minimise environmental impact. Sustainability is also defined by long-lasting comfort and durability from well-designed garments that will last the test of time."
All seven of the Insula warm layer garments - comprising of 24 sweaters in total - are made from fabric which is approved to the globally recognised standard for environmental textile production.
Currently, fabric used in more than 60% of the garments in the Gore-Tex range are also sourced from bluesign-approved suppliers, including the popular selection of highly-breathable and comfortable Ventil8 trousers.
