Unlike traditional cotton t-shirts that are created with more than 500 gallons of water, the Recover t-shirts available at Surfrider.org are made with ZERO water. The Recover process recycles old clothing and cutting-room scraps that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill, and turns them into new fibers, colors and designs, through the water-less and chemical-free process. The new fibers are then turned into t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts and much more! The Recover process is 100% water-free and emits nearly zero carbon emissions. In addition, 50% of the energy used to produce the shirts is generated via solar power.
