AN ADVENTURE TOP MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES (PETE)
In Australia, 370 million plastic bottles go into landfill every year. On a positive note, we live in an era where we can do something about it. tscudo uses the most trusted performance fiber made from recycled plastic bottles. In fact, six plastic bottles make up one tee. The ripple effect starts with us.
OUR SUN SMART INDEX
Australia’s geographical location ensures our country receives high levels of Ultra Violet Radiation (UVR) which is the major cause of skin cancer. At least two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.
So, cover up. Use sun screen, wear breathable UPF50+ sun protective clothing and every six to twelve months get your skin checked by a skin specialist. We all know the rules when it comes to skin care just ensure you apply them.

That fact that these shirts are made from 6 recycled plastic bottles is enough reason for everyone to get one. However, I needed a long sleeve shirt that is UPF50+ when I am out in the water or mountain biking. I have the Black T-shell in Medium and it works like a treat. On hot rides it protects my skin while still keeping me nice an cool. When I'm in the water it basically acts as a rash shirt with maximum skin protection and dries quick enough to wear as a casual top. Love it!

I LOVE my tscudo top! My kids and husband always wear rashies to the beach and I was always the ‘sun seeker’ but decided it was time to be safe and set a good example for my kids.
The womens tscudo top is an excellent slim fit, the material is soft and light and keeps you cool. It’s seriously awesome and the fact that is made from recycled products is incredible and a great talking point :) I’ve been telling everyone about it.
The passion behind tscudo and product are fantastic.

My son has one of these - it’s awesome! He loves telling people that it’s made from recycled plastic bottles ... funny thing is that some kids don’t believe him because the fabric is so soft! He loves turtles so also loves that he is “saving the turtles”.

Having a history of sun damaged skin myself, covering up is a priority to me now. My grandchildren now wear them, as a preventative measure, it's very satisfying, as I know this great product is now protecting the latest generation from the damaging effect of the sun on their skin. The second great thing about the tscudo top, is the good it is doing for our environment. Try this great product, you won’t be disappointed!

Outdoor journeys are my passion. I’ve had the pleasure of travelling and working in many countries from Iceland, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Scotland, Canada, New Zealand shooting some spectacular events and adventures. And one thing I recall in common is that the sun was out causing me to sweat while carrying heavy packs to get the shot. I’ve tried many ways to cover up and protect myself, the latest is a very eco responsible Australian made product from TSCUDO, the tshell. Whether hiking amongst Swiss peaks and glaciers or photographing the Alpen Tour in Schladming, Austria chasing mountain bike riders around the mountains for 4 days the tscudo top was great at keeping me cool. So, while you are out hiking, exercising or maybe on the water kayaking and stand up paddle boarding it’s great to know that the garment on your back shielding you from the sun rays is also helping the environment.
Thanks TSCUDO for the fabulous tops, will last a lifetime of journeys.

I am thrilled with my top and most definitely it will be getting a lot of outdoor action. I spend a lot of time outdoors and don't enjoy the feeling of some sunsafe shirts. This is different and having a practice run and swim in the coming weeks means l will be doing so confidently. Additionally a use for plastic and sustainability certainly go hand in hand.
