DIRTBALL FASHION WHERE EVERYDAY IS EARTH DAY
Founded in 2008 by Joe Fox, race car driver, entrepreneur and North Carolina native, Dirtball strives to make fashionable, eco-friendly apparel and gear for active individuals – cutting across age and gender lines.
Dirtball only uses recycled or organic domestic produced materials in their products and all products are designed and produced in the United States the majority within a 250 mile radius of headquarters. Not only does the recycled content add to the ecological-friendliness of the company, but the U.S.-based manufacturing arm adds to the local economy and shortens shipping distances, thereby reducing Dirtball Fashion’s carbon footprint.
Most people don’t think about what happens after their 16-ounce plastic bottle goes into the recycle bin, but Dirtball Fashion does. Their product line focuses on keeping those bottles out of American landfills – Their shirts" are made out of 65% recycled cotton fiber and 35% recycled post consumer polyester. Their shorts are 100% recycled polyester. Each shirt contains or 2 ½ 16 ounce plastic water bottles, and each short contains 10 16 ounce water bottles which have been repurposed to create a high-quality polyester blend fabric making the shirts and shorts as close a zero waste product as currently possible. The shirt is available in men’s, women’s and youth sizes while the shorts are available in men’s sizes and proceeds will go to the purchaser’s charity of choice.
“Dirtball Fashion is active, eco, outdoor and American. When you wear Dirtball you make that statement and what better statement can someone make,” said Joe Fox, president, Dirtball Fashion. “There’s no reason not to ‘go green’ with our eco-friendly clothing and products.”
