Guy Harvey Enters ICAST Product Showcase

MIAMI, FL )Guy Harvey, a staple in the marine apparel industry, is highlighting five new sustainably-manufactured products at the ICAST 2021 New Product Showcase. The awards, which embody the sportfishing industry’s ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit, offer a unique opportunity to display the brand’s innovative, functional apparel that has been manufactured using the most environmentally-friendly methods available.

Created by renowned artist Guy Harvey, the entire apparel collection is designed for ocean enthusiasts and anglers with a portion of all proceeds going towards scientific research and marine education through the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF). 

The commitment to ocean conservation and sustainability continues with Guy Harvey’s cutting-edge sustainable manufacturing practices. The facilities and machines are powered by carbon-neutral biofuels and solar energy to significantly reduce greenhouse emissions which have a direct impact on climate change. Additionally, Guy Harvey’s facility maintains an onsite water waste treatment system, so any water released from the manufacturing process is put back into the environment clean enough to drink.

The following Guy Harvey products are entered in three categories including ‘Lifestyle Apparel for Men,’ ‘Lifestyle Apparel for Women’ and ‘Warm Weather Technical Apparel.’

Lifestyle Apparel for Men

  • Guy Harvey THREADCYCLED™ T-Shirts: Guy Harvey has been focused on sustainability before his first t-shirt hit the shelves over 30 years ago. The latest generation of Guy Harvey apparel focuses on sustainability by developing and producing environmentally-friendly garments. The new Guy Harvey THREADCYCLED™ T-Shirts are made from a zero-waste process, using textile scraps that would otherwise end up in a landfill. The manufacturing scraps are mechanically recycled into fibers and blended with recycled polyester made from plastic bottles to create low-impact premium yarns. Guy Harvey THREADCYCLED™ T-Shirts require no fabric dye, water or other chemicals. This sustainable garment is made from 60% upcycled cotton and 40% recycled polyester and has moisture-wicking properties to help you stay cool and dry.
