Here’s a gnarly response to the Pacific Gyre (aka The Great Pacific Garbage Patch): boardies built out of recycled plastic water bottles. For their Billabong Recycler Board Shorts, Billabong has converted 50 million bottles made of Polyethylene terephthalate, turning them into seamless, stylish and water-repellent shorts. One pair saves about 25 PET
bottles from the landfill or ocean. Hard to argue with that. R700, billabong.com
