Sustainable Golf Wear by Galvin Green | Insula Styles
Posted at April 29, 2020
We explore the latest offering of sustainable golf wear by Galvin Green with some garments having been made from 100% recycled plastic - truly putting the "green" in Galvin Green.
Sustainable Golf Wear by Galvin Green
Galvin Green is a brand which aims to supply "the most sustainable products" in the golf wear sector and this year sees the brand becoming ever more environmentally responsible than ever.
It's all thanks to the introduction of their brand new Insula Layering range for SS20 with three key menswear silhouettes which are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. As an example, the fabric from this season's "DWIGHT" sweater will contain recycled polyester derived from as many as seventeen 1L plastic bottles - salvaged before they needlessly polluted our environment.
“Sustainability is part of the Galvin Green DNA and the new recycled polyester DWIGHT sweater reflects that fact perfectly,” said the brand's CEO, Nicholai Stein. “There is no compromise on the comfort or performance levels and it spearheads the new sustainable garments that we plan to introduce on a larger scale in future.
“We always set out to introduce cutting edge technologies to maximise a golfer’s performance, while at the same time, looking to minimise environmental impact. Sustainability is also defined by long-lasting comfort and durability from well- designed garments that will last the test of time,” he added.
The three main Insula products which are made from 100% recycled polyester include the DWIGHT, the DAMIE and the DRAKE styles - while there are also a handful of other ladies items which could be considered as sustainable golf wear by Galvin Green.
Galvin Green | Insula Layers
Most golfers will already know all about Galvin Green Insula golf wear which provides some of the most reliable performance when the conditions are on the cooler side.
What's more, we've also seen much greater attention to detail when it comes to the styling of the garments in recent seasons - meaning that they fit and look better than ever.
The durable fabrication has a soft handle and is comprised of airy chambers for thermal heat retention and ultra lightweight comfort. The natural stretch through the fabric leaves you with a perfect range of motion, while the outstanding levels of breathability mean that you'll always feel dry on the inside, too.
Galvin Green | Bluesign
What many golfers might not know, however, is that the entire Galvin Green Insula range is made with fabric approved to the globally recognised bluesign standard for environmental textile production.
So, that means that even the garments which aren't entirely made from plastic bottles are still responsibly sourced and crafted with sustainability in mind. The same is true of every GORE-TEX waterproof garment in the latest Galvin Green collection for 2020.
“Our goal is to have almost the entire range fully sustainable in the near future and we continue to search across the world for suppliers who can provide sustainable fabric that meets the demanding standards required by ourselves and bluesign®,” said Product Manager Sofia Ask Klason.
“The task is being made easier as more fabric suppliers meet higher environmental standards and help us deliver the best garments possible for today’s golfers and future generations,” she added.
