GBSUP/RNLI Men’s Recycled SUP Tee
Once again GBSUP has chosen to partner with The RNLI this year to continue the support they gave in 2021, and fundraise much needed income for the amazing things that the RNLI does.
The RNLI continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income. 93% of their total income comes from donations and support like ours, which in 2019 helped launch 8,941 lifeboat rescues, aid over 29,000 beachgoers and respond to 17,356 incidents. It cost £181.5M to run the RNLI lifesaving service in 2019, which is no small amount.
A major part of this is to annually create something amazing that shows our support in a unique way.
Last year we created a tech training top that people can use in their day to day paddling, but this year for 2022 we have chosen the work of a local artist from Kent to come up with a design that pays direct tribute to the paddling community, the ocean and the enjoyment we all get from it.
Collaborating with ShoreTees SUPwear, we have produced this amazing t-shirt that brings all of this together, and with every one of these Tees which is sold, £6.50 goes to the RNLI.
Following the ShoreTees ethos, this tee is from our 100% recycled range as is made from recycled plastic bottles (5 1.5L plastic bottles per T shirt) and the off cuts from the production of organic t-shirts ensures nothing goes to waste, ensuring that we maintain our ethos, and you can know you are doing something to support the environment.
