Our mission is to inspire a happy, active, healthy and sustainable way of life. Moreover, we create quality, stylish, functional swimwear and active wear from recycled plastic bottles that could otherwise end up in our oceans. For example, we repurposed over 20,208 bottles and we plan to see this number increase each year.
Did you know that plastic bottles labeled with the #1 on the bottom are the same chemistry make-up as polyester? Recycled plastic bottles are ground into flakes and transformed into fiber or thread and used to knit our polyester fabrics.
Plastic makes up about 90% of all the trash floating in the ocean and it doesn’t biodegrade. Therefore, more and more plastic gets produced and it ends up in our oceans. We aspire to be a part of the solution.
Most importantly, our goal is to set up a program to collect and recycle discarded plastic bottles, keep them out of the ocean and use them to create high value products. In addition, we organize beach clean ups, support recycling programs, donate our time to grassroots environmental groups, and give back to our local communities.
OUR PROCESS – CREATIVE RE-USE
Imagine discarded plastic bottles as a resource to be captured and re-used in a circular manner. For example, up-cycling plastic bottles helps to keep plastic out of landfills, the ocean and our environment. Furthermore, recycling and reusing plastic offsets the need to produce new raw materials.
We use 100% recycled polyester, certified Repreve®, in ALL our waterwear goods, which is both soft and durable. Further, we believe in giving you more value in each piece. In addition, our styles are reversible, giving you 2 in 1 and allowing you to mix and match within our collection.
We focus on function, comfort and style, creating beautiful pieces from simple to high performance designs. Moreover, our quality soft material provides the comfort you need to stay out on the water as long as you want. Plus the versatility of our products allows you to enjoy them on and off the water.
MADE WITH LOVE IN THE USA
We are proud to make all our waterwear from start to finish in the USA. In addition, we reduce our carbon footprint while supporting local and national businesses and helping our economy grow.
Our family owned workshop where all our pieces are carefully handmade and sewn with love is in sunny South Florida. We believe in a responsible manufacturing process, having a personal relationship with our hard working team, knowing where and how every piece is made and giving back is important to us. Further, we choose to only work with manufacturers that provide full time jobs with fair wages and benefits.
We also use recycled plastic and recycled paper for all our packaging from EcoEnclose. We strive to reduce, reuse and recycle throughout every process.
