Force Sportswear has been based in Bordeaux, France, since 2013 and has always focused its development on commitments that matter to the company's founders:

-To offer rugged and quality customised sportswear at an affordable price
- And to fight industrial de-localisation and to keep our production close to home

All our gear is made right here in our Bordeaux workshop with a local labour force and all the raw materials we use are made in Europe, reducing the journey from the workshop to the playing fields. Our custom sportswear is 100% European and we aim to keep it that way!

When did you join EOCA? April 2021

Why our company is involved with EOCA? We spend a lot of time outdoors because of the work we do and through our involvement with certain niche sports. Outdoor conservation is close to our hearts and here in the workshop we reuse, recycle and reduce waste in an effort to limit the company's environmental impact as much as possible.

We've been fans of EOCA for a while and have followed their projects with interest. We made the most of our involvement with a recent charity drive to channel all our donations through to the EOCA and then decided to get involved more directly by becoming a member.


 
What else do we do to support conservation?All our gear ships out in reused or recycled packaging, transport carbon emissions are offset, we use recycled polyester products as much as possible when producing our sportswear range and we plan to encourage our clients to make (EOCA) donations at the events we attend. And we refuse to outsource our production, all our custom gear is entirely made in Europe using European raw materials.

But there is definately more we could do! Shifting over to a 100% recycled sportswear range would be a long-term goal.


Our best green product and why? One of our recycled XPRO3 custom sports jerseys or even one of our funky beach towels! They are lightweight, printed with eco-solvent sublimation inks certified by OEKO-TEX, cut and sewn here in our semi-industrial workshop and ship out locally to althetes in Europe.

We’re delighted to have been supported by the European Outdoor Conservation Association, who have been
an excellent partner and whose support has enabled us to divert more much-needed funds into local projects.
