Billabong Recycler x Recover
We're always searching for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. This season, we've teamed up with Recover, a longtime leader in the sustainable fashion industry, on a line of tees that minimize our carbon footprint and help us protect the places we play.
Recover garments consist of 55% upcycled cotton from textile clipping waste and discarded garments and 45% from recycled bottles, all of which is converted into yarn. The Recover factories in Spain are powered purely by solar energy, mean that Recover puts its money where their mouth is and demonstrate a sincere commitment to their mission of changing the way clothing is manufactured while preserving the environment in the process. Our Billabong Recycler x Recover tees are made from Recover yarn, meaning each tee is truly one of a kind and is tangible evidence of our, and Recover's, unwavering commitment to the environment that we spend so much time in.

- A revolutionary production process saves hundreds of gallons of water per tee by eliminating 99% of typical water usage
- No chemicals are used in the production process
