every positive impact counts
As a swimwear company, specialized in surf wear, it makes sense that we want to keep the oceans healthy. It is important to us to protect what we love most. We believe that every choice we make has an impact, and every impact, big or small, creates waves.
That is why we have partnered up with Healthy Seas. This environmental organization and the amazing people behind it, are working hard to protect our oceans. We proudly donate 1% of all our online sales to Healthy Seas. Let us tell you more about this amazing organization and the people behind.
Healthy Seas is a non-profit organization and was founded in 2013. Their goal is to tackle the ghost fishing problem which is responsible for the suffering of millions of marine animals. Dolphins, seals, turtles, birds and other animals get entangled in these nets which can lead to serious injuries and death.
Every year, about 640’000 tons of fishing gear are left or abandoned in the oceans. Through cleanups with volunteer divers, Healthy Seas collects these deadly waste nets and ensures they become a valuable resource. Since its start in 2013, already over 585 tons of fishing nets have been collected with the help of divers, fishermen and fish farms.
Recycling and regenerating
Nylon fishing nets are regenerated together with other nylon waste by Aquafil into ECONYL® yarn while the other types of plastics are also reused or recycled.
ECONYL® is a 100% regenerated high quality nylon fiber made from recovered fishing nets and other nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world.
As for now, almost our whole swimwear collection is sustainable and made out of these high quality ECONYL® fabrics. Our goal is to be as sustainable as possible, always trying to find new ways to help the environment.
journey from waste to wear
Founded on the principles of circular economy, Healthy Seas champions the three pillars of sustainability and strives to make a positive and long-lasting impact to the marine environment, as well as the development of society, through education and awareness raising.
We are incredibly thankful for the amazing work of Healthy Seas and we are happy to be able to participate and support.
