For over three years, we have chosen to source and use ECONYL® regenerated nylon in our surf garments. Why? For us, it's a no-brainer: sustainable textiles x responsible manufacturing is the new normal and a business imperative for all fashion, surf and swim brands in this modern economy.
For every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material, these are the environmental benefits obtained:~ Elimination of 12.6 thousand tonnes of waste
~ Saved 70,000 barrels of crude oil
~ Avoided 57,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions
~ Reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil
