RECYCLING IS REWARDING
As a slow-fashion business, our prices reflect the cost of small batch production, high-quality materials, and fair pay across our supply chain, so we don’t usually do discounts, seasonal sales, or Black Fridays. But if you save a swimsuit from landfill, we think that’s worth a reward.
Did You Know?
An estimated 150 billion clothing garments are produced globally every year. 30% are never sold, most of those bought are discarded within 1 year, and 57% (14million tons a year) end up in landfill. Less than 1% of all material produced globally is actually recycled into new clothing, and less than 15% is recycled for any other use at all.
Fashion Has To Close The Loop
Our ultimate goal is to turn old swimwear into new. But nearly all swimwear, even if it’s made with recycled yarn like Econyl®, is made by weaving the nylon together with elastane to give the fabric its comfort, strength, and stretch. In order for either to be reused the two yarns need separating again, but current technology is not cost or environmentally efficient enough. Even so, we are committed to working on this and other closed-loop solutions with our suppliers.
In the meantime, we’ve teamed up with our production partner ApparelTASKER and First Mile to give our factory off-cuts and any old swimwear you send us another life, such as being downcycled to make carpet underlay, and without any being incinerated or ending up in landfill.
