Billabong Sonic Boom Boardshorts

Billabong’s Eco-Supreme Suede fabric is derived from recycled PET plastic bottles that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. To date, the company cites more than three million bottles diverted in the program.

The result is Boardshorts like the Sonic Boom. The shorts give a stylish look and a performance fit with a feel-good eco story to boot. Billabong’s Sonic Boom Boardshorts cost $59.50.
