The trash shorts

Agency: FCB


To help fight against coastal pollution, iconic sportswear brand TBS designed swim shorts out of recycled plastic bottles. And what better way to speak about it than by recycling its print ad campaign released 24 years ago? Bottles, plastic bags, bottle caps, cigarette butts and all kinds of rubbish, floating sadly at the surface of the water and scattered across our beaches.
24 years ago, TBS revealed the terrible impact of coastal pollution. Sadly, 24 years later, nothing has changed: our beaches and seashores are still littered with all kinds of trash, if not more
so. Determined to save them, TBS and its ad agency Brand Station have launched a one-of-a-kind rescue operation: collect the trash on our beaches and transform it into swim shorts.
100% eco-friendly swim shorts, made out of plastic bottles, to fight against coastal pollution – with style – and help give their beauty and cleanliness back to the Mediterranean beaches.

This professional campaign titled 'The trash shorts' was published in France in June, 2021. It was created for the brand: TBS, by ad agency: FCB. This Print medium campaign is related to the Fashion industry and contains 3 media assets. It was submitted over 2 years ago by Executive Creative Director: Damien Guiol of Change & Brand Station Paris an FCB Alliance.
