ABOUT OUR SUSTAINABLE SWIMWEAR
We want to change the industry standard to one where taking a sustainable and environmentally responsible approach lies at the heart of doing business. This is why we are so excited to introduce our new eco-luxe swimwear range.
This collection features luxurious minimalist designs that are made with the environment in mind. Each piece is constructed with 100% regenerated nylon made of recycled fishing nets that have been reclaimed from our oceans. They are then transformed into a durable eco-luxe nylon fabric which is sourced from Italy to create all of your favourite SLINKII styles!
The UN Environment Programme and World Animal Protection estimate that approximately 640,000 tonnes of fishing nets are abandoned in our oceans each year. These abandoned fishing nets - also known as 'ghost nets' - can remain adrift for up to 600 years and are responsible for the capture and death of hundreds of thousands of marine animals such as dolphins, whales, seals and seal turtles. A single net can entangle up to 40 marine animals!
By recovering materials that are suitable for remanufacturing and feeding it back into the production cycle, this process helps reduce the global waste that end up in our oceans and landfill. For every tonne of fishing nets that is recovered and regenerated, up to 26,000 bikini pieces can be produced!
