Just like cleaning a beach full of trash, you have to start somewhere. Our start is to make the best quality swim trunks out of recycled plastics, determined to protect our beaches and waters - no ifs, ands or buts (cigarettes or otherwise!) We are currently designing the look of our upcoming swim collection, but we can say for certain each pair of trunks uses over 10 plastic bottles. Currently, there are over 8 million tons of plastic on our oceans, with less than 30% of plastic recycled. We believe everyone can do their part, you just have to dive in.
Our home is the barefoot community in Key West, Florida. Everyone knows each other (and each other’s favorite drink!) and there is a shared passion of caring for their nautical neighborhood. In the spirit of coordinated beach trash pickups, lemonade stand proceeds for maritime charities, and volunteering at the crack of dawn to chaperone hatchling turtles to the safety of the surf, we started Skiff Dogs to promote this care and conservation. Much like our namesake, we aim to bring an energy and enthusiasm to getting out on the water, and the responsibility that goes with it.
