Let's talk about the green in galvin green
Products that last
We believe in a holistic approach to sustainability and our work on this subject is an ongoing process here at Galvin Green. It’s in our DNA to introduce new, cutting-edge technologies to maximize the golfer’s performance; while, at the same time, seeking to minimize social and environmental impact. Whenever possible, we choose sustainable textile production methods, fabrics and labels. But equally important is to offer reliable, long-lasting comfort that creates a relationship with the player. Garment lifespan is a cornerstone of our product development, and we see how our well-designed products often become favourites that continue to be worn by golfers time and again.
Sustainable materials show the way
We are gradually expanding our range made from certified and third-party approved materials to improve the environmental footprint throughout the supply chain. The task is being made easier as more fabric suppliers meet higher environmental standards and help us deliver the best garments possible for today’s golfers and future generations.
- All GORE-TEX products are made from Bluesign® approved materials.
- All INSULA™ products are made from Bluesign® approved materials and feature garments made from recycled plastic bottles.

Sustainability to us is defined by long-lasting comfort. We make durable, well-designed quality garments that create a relationship with the player - that will stand the test of time.
Our first bluesign collaboration was with W.L Gore & Associates, with whom we have a long standing relationship incorporating the unrivalled GORE-TEX® laminate across our line of waterproof jackets and trousers. The difficulty is to find fabric suppliers who can apply the demanding principles of the system that is obviously good for the environment, while providing us with materials of the necessary quality to make our premium garments. The criteria is very stringent in terms of the amount of water and electricity used in the process of manufacturing fabrics, as well as the addition of chemicals approved in the European Union or authorised worldwide. Bluesign® inspectors conduct comprehensive audits at textile factories to verify compliance.
For the first time in 2021, we have adopted Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification to the VENTIL8™ PLUS shirt collection. The globally recognised label certifies that each component in the shirts – every thread, button, zipper and other accessory – has been independently tested for harmful substances and that the item is completely safe in human ecological terms.
The eco generation INSULA™ is a range of warming, mid layer garments made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Look for recycled polyester in the quality field under the product information tab on the product page.
