Picture Organic Clothing Activa Shorts | Review

A do-it-all pair of shorts built in an eco-conscious way

Why We Chose It: Functional and with eco-friendly materials
Price: £47
Capacity: 450g

While these might be made with water sports in mind, I’ve actually found them to be a great pair of shorts for hiking and trail running. They’re light, super quick-drying and have a great bit of stretch to make sure your stride is never hindered. 

Nice details include an elasticated waist with a popper closure, reflective details, Cordura reinforcements, zipped side pockets (one with a loop for you keys) and little gaps to allow airflow.

They’re also made from 50% recycled materials. In fact, Picture Organic Clothing have a whole range of shorts that are built in an eco-conscious way.

As a brand, Picture are up-front about the challenges that outdoor clothing companies face when it comes to manufacturing high-quality gear in a more environmentally-friendly way and they’re committed to reducing reliance on fossil fuels – notably petroleum, which is the raw material for most synthetics.

The sustainability section of Picture’s website gives a great overview of the various considerations, challenges and possible solutions that are out there and it’s well worth a read if you’re at all interested in eco-friendly outdoor gear and would like to be better informed.
