Sustainability x No Bad Addiction
All our swimwear is made from sustainable and recycled fabrics. We’ve partnered up with Healthy Seas and Econyl that do an incredible job in creating a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post-industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets collected from the ocean. All our bikinis are now made with these fabrics.
But just to be clear. The fabrics are not only sustainable and recycled. They are also one of the best quality fabrics available. They are butter soft, luxe fabrics that will last countless seasons. We get the best of both worlds. It's a win-win. We provide you, our queenies, with the best quality swimwear in the market while at the same time help clean up the oceans and work towards a more sustainable future.
ECO FRIENDLY FABRICS
We don’t talk about sustainability just because it is fashionable. We are not into “green washing”, on the contrary, the first bikinis we made and sold were not eco friendly at all. But as we gained more industry experience and learned about different fabrics and the effects that they have on our environment we came to a clear conclusion. We needed to change.
"By 2050 our seas will contain more garbage than fish."
8 million tons of waste end up in our seas every single year. 640 thousand tons of fishing nets are abandoned at the bottom of the ocean. Such alarming data tells us that, unless the situation changes, unless we do something, by 2050 our seas will contain more garbage than fish.
Once we learned this we knew that we needed to change our approach to our production radically. We set out in search of a fabric that was high quality and luxe, but also eco friendly and sustainable. A fabric that can help combat the horrible atrocities happening to our ocean life, every day.
"Italian Luxe fabric, 100% recycled"
We spoke to producers in the US, Portugal and China. After a long search, we finally found an Italian Luxe fabric that uses ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post-industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets collected from the ocean. Today this is the fabric we use in all our Swimwear and is something we are very proud of.
