All our swimwear is made out of ECONYL ® and Repreve.
These materials are created by collecting plastic waste and fishing nets from the oceans and landfills, and regenerated into ECONYL ® and Repreve products.
The fabrics used in production are all certified recycled and dyes are GOTS certified & OEKO-TEX® approved.
"By 2050, our seas may contain more garbage than fish. 8 million tons of waste end up in our seas every single year. 640K tons of fishing nets are abandoned in the ocean. Less than 1% is recycled."
THE RECYCLING PROCESS
1. RESCUE / The process starts by collecting ghost fishing nets and plastic waste from the oceans and landfills.
2. REGENERATE / Through a regeneration and purification process the nylon waste is recycled back to its original purity.
3. REMAKE / The Econyl regenerated nylon is then processed into textile yarn.
4. REIMAGINE / We then create and produce with this material all the wonderful pieces for you. This nylon has the potential to be recycled infinitively, without ever loosing its quality.
We use biodegradable, recycled and recyclable packaging.
The suits are packed in a bio-degradable Avani Cassava inner-bag. These bags degrade in less than 60 seconds in contact with water, or in a landfill, max 3 months.
We ship our suits in a compostable mailer or brown shipping box which is recyclable and made out of recycled fibers.
1 ORDER = 1 TREE PLANTED
We want to improve our sustainable practices. We recognise that there are sections within the supply chain that are difficult to even out. Producing swimwear from recycled and eco-friendly materials is simply not enough. We have partnered up with Ecologi, an environmental organisation to plant one tree for each order placed. We also fund different carbon offset projects each month that have a direct impact on atmospheric CO2 levels, this way we want to reduce our carbon footprint and achieve our goal of becoming a climate- positive brand.
