We believe that every creature on this planet deserves to be treated with care and respect. Humans, dogs, cats, sea turtles, coral reefs, fish, sea urchins, we could go on, all deserves a good life on our planet. We truly believe that we should be caring for our marinelife as much as we care for our pets and each other. Our mission is try and protect, even if just a little bit, our marine life from the devastating effects, plastic waste has on them.
We use exclusive ECONYL fabrics, which are fabrics that are created from ocean waste such as fishing nets and other plastic waste. This plastic waste is then recycled into a strong nylon which then becomes the luxurious Italian fabrics we use.
As well as being a solution on waste, ECONYL regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil. The fabric we used is made from 78% recycled plastic waste and 22% Elastane.

WE BELIEVE IN A PLASTIC FREE WORLD
Everyday about 8 million pieces of plastic finds their way into our oceans. Recent studies have revealed marine plastic pollution in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals and 40% of seabird species examined. 100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually. Plastic waste has a devastating effect on wildlife such as fish, dolphins, seabirds and seals as they can become entangled or mistake it for food. More and more wildlife turns up dead on beaches with their stomachs full of plastic waste. An autopsy of a whale, washed up on a beach in Norway, showed 30 different plastic bags and other plastic packaging with labels all the way from Denmark and England.
This is exactly why we have to act on getting rid of plastic in our nature and why we invest in sustainable packaging and use eco friendly swimwear fabrics.
We can be better and we will be better each day our company is here. So thank you for reading this and thank you for supporting us in our mission to save and protect our oceans.
