Newport Beach-based surf apparel company Toes on the Nose this summer will launch a limited-edition line of board shorts, board bags and beach bags hand-made from recycled sailcloth

Appropriately named the 2nd Wind Project, the locally crafted, no-two-alike items will retail from $95 to $125.

Toes on the Nose executives say the project will help reduce the carbon footprint of discarded sails.

“The 2nd Wind Project gives us a chance to use recycled material in creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces to incorporate into our collection,” says Toes on the Nose President Richard Allred. “As a company dedicated to the art of surfing, it is important for us to do our part in keeping our oceans and earth clean.”

Readers Feedback:

I think it is a cool idea from a green standpoint but would like to see them focus on the fuction aspect as well. Years ago I had some swim trunks made from ripstop nylon, super light and fast drying, cool colors. I loved them. Bill
