Celebrate Earth Day With Free Country’s FreeCycle® Collection
Look good and feel good in eco-friendly outdoor gear, plus more ways to make a positive impact in your community.
As a company inspired by the great outdoors, we believe protecting the planet is a paramount. The environment is for everyone to enjoy, so it’s our responsibility to care for it. We’re passionate about playing hard in nature and working hard to preserve it, too. To do our part, Free Country's FreeCycle collection uses recycled bottles and post-industrial waste to create a stylish and sustainable line of clothing and swimwear. Plastic bottles are collected, cleaned and converted into high-quality fibers, which are then spun and air-jet textured into yarn. The result is performance-packed high quality fills and fabrics—and we’ve recycled 25 million bottles…and counting!
In honor of Earth Day, we’re offering 50% off all FreeCycle items on 4/22 using code EARTH50!
With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, stock up on new bathing suits. Our swimwear is made from a recycled poly fabric (each style saves approximately 3 to 5 water bottles from the landfill!) and has built-in UPF 50+ sun protection—so it’s good for your skin and the planet! We also have sun shirts, swim shorts, jackets and cozy loungewear—all created from the contents of your recycling bin.
Free Country cares about making the world a cleaner, greener and better place, but everyone has a role to play. This Earth Day is the perfect time to take action, so here are a few small ways you can make a big impact.
Donate old clothes
Don’t let last season’s castoffs end up in a landfill—nearly 270 million tons of garbage goes to waste every year. When you donate clothing and shoes, you’re caring for the planet and changing someone’s life. Soles4Souls is a nonprofit that makes the process easier by providing free shipping labels to send up to 50 pounds of gently used goods from anywhere in the U.S.
Soles4Souls then recycles or sends donations to developing countries or local homeless communities in need—they've saved more than 81 million pounds of textiles so far!
Reduce your carbon footprint
Making small changes to your daily habits can amount to big strides toward creating a more sustainable future for the environment. Walk or bike to work or use public transportation instead of driving. Reduce your energy consumption by turning off lights and appliances and unplugging electronics when they are not in use. Other easy actions: Save water by taking shorter showers, and ditch single-use plastic and opt for reusable bags and containers.
Organize or attend a local community clean-up event at a park, beach or any public space in need of some TLC. Spending a few hours picking up litter and pollution helps to keep our air and water clean, prevent the spread of diseases and creates an overall healthier environment for all. Not only will you be making a visible difference, but you’ll also prevent wildlife from ingesting harmful materials. Plus, maybe you’ll uncover a spark of creativity and be inspired to turn some trash into repurposed treasures or a funky piece of art.
