Awhile back we posted about eco-friendly women's fashion by Linda Loudemilk and our male readers were interested in men's eco styles. Bagir, makers of EcoGir, is an Israeli based company that delivers hip eco-friendly clothing for us guys. The EcoGir recycled blazer is made from 100% post consumer waste, much of which is PET bottles. To make an entire EcoGir suit roughly 30 plastic bottles are needed. Once the plastic is reformatted into a plastic fiber it can be woven into fabric much like other synthetic textiles such as polyester or nylon. Bagir has perfected the process and offers stylish, high quality, and comfortable menswear.

About the Author:
Doug is in perpetual motion and a self-proclaimed adventure junkie, that has had a longtime love affair with the great outdoors.
“I love being a part of the active world. The stuff that blows my hair back is adventure (all shapes and sizes), photography, mountaineering, Muay Thai, and seeing natural beauty in all its forms. The living earth is the framework on which I build my life and free time. My ideal trip would be BASE jumping at Sotano de Las Golandrinas in Mexico (closest I could come to skydiving through the jungle!). I work towards keeping it real, green, and healthy. ”
Doug is the co-founder of LiveOAK, although he says he didn’t know what a blog was until a couple months after he started.
