THE SEA, THE GREAT UNIFIER, IS MAN’S ONLY HOPE.
NOW, AS NEVER BEFORE, THE OLD PHRASE
HAS A LITERAL MEANING:

Help us reduce consumption of natural resources and micro plastic pollution!
WHY DO WE NEED TO USE PLASTIC?
Unfortunately, plastic is currently here to stay…
8 Million tons of plastic end up in our oceans and landfills every year. It will take many years before the problem of plastic waste is properly addressed. Until then we have decided to take responsibility for as much as we can as a business and to use only regenerated fibres for our products.
WHY REGENERATED FABRICS?
Despite growing public awareness of the problem, the rate at which our societies produce plastic waste is not decreasing, and there are such huge quantities already out there! We believe we need to rethink the way we see plastic waste: a material resource, not just pollution.
That’s why we choose regenerated fabrics instead of new materials for our swimwear line.
Recycling may not save the planet but it helps reducing consumption of new raw materials and conserving natural resources.
In fact, it takes two-thirds less energy to make products from recycled plastic than it does by using virgin materials.
We believe that upcycling and recycling plastic waste into new products is a great option in the clean-up and overall reduction of waste pollution.
WHAT ABOUT MICROFIBRES?
It is an absolute fact that microfibres pollute the entire planet’s waterways…
Approx 1 – 1.5 grams of microfibres are released into the water system when washing a microfibre releasing garment. Which then enters the ecosystem and ultimately the planets food chain which could have devastating results for the planet’s survival.
Luckily, an effective solution to that problem already exists!
