Making conscious purchasing decisions does not mean compromising on style or quality when it comes to our swimwear. Sustainability is sexy and you deserve to look and feel amazing in your swimwear!
This is why each Saltwater swimsuit is made from abandoned fishing nets, plastic scraps, and nylon waste from landfills.
Plastic pollution in our oceans is becoming an epidemic with 8 Million tons being dumped in our oceans each year. If we don't curb our consumption, scientists predict that plastic will outweigh fish in the sea by 2050.
In addition, the fashion industry has been a leader in contributing to pollution and environmental degradation globally.
We believe passionately that it is time to start making fashion decisions with the earth in mind, and this is why the fabrics we use are woven exclusively from ECONYL® yarn.
ECONYL® yarn is regenerated from pre and post consumer Nylon waste that would otherwise be abandoned in nature or dumped in landfills.
The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover as much nylon as possible
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled back to its original purity, meaning the final product is equivalent to virgin nylon.
The nylon then has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. The end goal is to create a circular economy in which products can be infinitely regenerated and reused.
We believe that sustainable fabrics are the way of the future. In a circular economy, waste is not wasted. Why take from the earth when we don't have to?
