Sustainable apparel brand Reflo has released a set of upcycled head covers made from old samples in an effort to further minimise waste.
Each set is completely unique and comprises three head covers, designed for a driver, fairway wood and a hybrid. The RRP is £85 per set.
Rory MacFayden, founder of Reflo, explained how the idea for the clubhead covers came about.
“As part of our process of creating a clothing range, you inevitably produce samples. Often samples can’t be sold as the fit, finish and quality aren’t quite right. It is vitally important to us that we practice what we preach, so we not only keep waste to an absolute minimum and turn any unused samples into high quality, hand made, unique, sustainable club head covers. We make the inner of the covers from old Lapter Hoodies and Neva Joggers and the outers are made from Wandel Jackets and Adriatic and Corinth Polos.”
Reflo launched a full men’s sport apparel range earlier this year which features a range of 57 products made from advanced technical fabrics woven from recycled waste and discarded single use plastic. A women’s range is to be released in September.
The UK-based company aims to recycle five million plastic bottles worth of plastic by 2026. The fabrics are created to adhere to multiple sustainability certifications including Global Recycled Standard, Bluesign, Oeko-Tex 100 and U Trust.
The company has also pledged to plant a tree in areas of the world devastated by deforestation for every product sold. The brand aims to plant one million trees by 2026, from then onwards they aim to plant a minimum of one million trees every year.
