How long does it take to get your skin checked. About as long as this message…. take 2min to read.
So every journey starts somewhere.
For tscudo, it started with me and a simple reminder. A reminder from my wife to get my skin checked. There was a spot, let’s call it ‘that’ spot on my back that looked dark and out of character. A long awaited skin check up was made (8 years since the last) with my local GP / skin specialists.
It was a routine skin check until my GP stopped at ‘that’ spot. It didn’t look right, and a biopsy was made right then and there.
One week later I was back at my GP for the results of ‘that’ spot. It wasn’t good. Stage 1 melanoma and way too close to a darker side of life than I expected.
Another appointment with my GP was set to cut ‘that’ spot out. A simple procedure ending with a new scar, followed by an anxious one week wait. The results were clear and fortunately I was clear of any further stages of melanoma.
So tscudo was born. A new sustainable shield against the elements. A chance to assist in the prevention of skin damage and educate others on the importance to cover up when outside as well as in the water and at the same time highlight the importance to recycle.
So this sustainable shield, well it’s called the men’s Tshell. It’s UPF50+, assists in protection against skin damage, it’s light weight, quick dry. Perfect in the water and on land and it’s made from recycled plastic bottles. In fact, six bottles make up one Tshell and it’s made in Sydney, Australia.
The first production of long sleeve Tshells are available now. It’s a casual fit. Wear it on your hike to the beach, then in the water, go for a stand up paddle then hike back to your local. *see other uses below*
Its finished in Black or White. It’s a special production because it’s the first.
So if you value your skin and making sure those used plastic bottles are being placed in the correct bin … do we have a sun top for you.
So welcome to the tscudo journey. We look forward to being part of yours.
Please direct message me if you’re interested in purchasing one.
*some other uses include - Kayaking, Fishing, Golf, Running, Surfing, Boating and all round adventuring*
