SailProud is an awesome organization featured in last year’s Sea(cret) Santa Series. They’re a company with a social conscience and some good looking sailing kit too!
I was glad to see that StartUpNation jumped onboard the SailProud boat earlier this year by recognizing the company as the category winner for “Greenest Business” in 2009. Great job and congratulations!
You really can’t get much “greener” than giving someone special one of SailProud’s EcoWear™ Tech Tees.
Constructed from an astonishing 5 plastic bottles per shirt, and saving 3.41 pounds of carbon emissions through its construction, the EcoWear™ Tech Tee is at the pinnacle of eco-friendly wear, with all of the performance benefits you need.
Milled to have an ultra-soft, yet durable, feel the EcoWear™ Tech Tee is a high wicking and fast drying shirt that offers a comfort level and fit that no other technical shirt can. To top it off, the shirt is tested to have a UPF factor of 30+, helping to keep your skin safe from damaging UVA/B rays.
Look good and save the environment and your skin at the same time! SailProud is just another demostration of just how resourceful sailors can be.
They currently have a special on a 2 Tee gift pack for $45.99.
Looking for some fun sailing shirts and other cool kit, Sea(cret) Santa recommends checking out Sail (Proud). From their website:
