Sustainable performance activewear brand Reflo is the new official apparel partner of this year’s Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open, taking place at Dundonald Links, at the end of July. The partnership celebrates the first drop of Reflo’s new sustainable womenswear range.
Reflo will provide event uniforms for all tournament officials, VIP sponsors and Pro-am guests. Additionally, Reflo will provide gift vouchers for all ticket holders, volunteers, VIP’s and Pro-am guests. The first ten fans who enter the event each day will also receive a gifted Reflo hat.
Reflo will also be committing to plant a tree for every birdie scored. Reflo’s apparel is made from advanced technical fabrics produced from recycled single-use plastic and coffee beans, one of Reflo’s hoodies contains the equivalent of 37 recycled plastic bottles. Working towards Reflo’s aim of recycling five million plastic bottles and planting one million trees by 2026, this partnership will see the equivalent of 25,852 plastic bottles recycled and 1,650 trees planted in areas around the world that have been devasted by deforestation.
Rory MacFadyen, Co-Founder of Reflo commented: “As a brand with sustainability at its core, we couldn’t think of a better event to launch our first womenswear drop.”
The Scottish Government and VisitScotland have long supported women’s golf, and in 2020 announced a five-year commitment to the Women’s Scottish Open with investment of up to £6m through to 2025.
Paul Bush OBE, Director of Events with VisitScotland commented: “Reflo is an exciting innovative brand, and we are delighted to support them in their aim to drive positive change within the fashion industry. Sustainability is an issue of ever-growing importance, so we are very passionate about Reflo’s recycling and tree planting initiatives that will create a positive impact to our environment.
