DIRTBALL FASHION LAUNCHES LIMITED EDTION EARTH DAY SHIRT

– U.S.-made Earth Day shirt to join new eco-friendly clothing line –

HICKORY, N.C. (April 7, 2009) – Most people don’t think about what happens after their 16-ounce plastic bottle goes into the recycle bin, but Dirtball Fashion does. Their product line focuses on keeping those bottles out of American landfills – “The Earth Day Shirt” – is made out of 65% recycled cotton fiber and 35% recycled post consumer polyester or 2 ½ 16 ounce plastic water bottles, which have been repurposed to create a high-quality polyester blend fabric making the shirt as close a zero waste product as currently possible. The shirt is available in men’s, women’s and youth sizes and proceeds will go to the purchaser’s charity of choice.

“Dirtball Fashion is active, eco, outdoor and American. When you wear Dirtball you make that statement and what better statement can someone make,” said Joe Fox, president, Dirtball Fashion. “There’s no reason not to ‘go green’ with our eco-friendly clothing and products.”

This is merely another product in Dirtball Fashion’s product lineup, which includes T-shirts, hats, knits, moisture management, skate decks and shorts. Coming in fall 2009 is a “water bottle-based” jacket, backpack an organic cotton canvas pant and green manufactured snowboards.
