With the thought in mind that by 2050 there will be more plastic in weight than fish in our oceans it is time to think about what you wear and how it is made.
At Tucca Swim, we believe sustainable swimwear isn’t just the Eco-Friendly fabrics used, it is also the process behind manufacturing and brand ethics. We aren’t just going along with the trend of sustainable swimwear; we are looking at the larger picture of the future. We have seen the amount of plastic in the Mediterranean Sea over the years and long forgotten are those days that we used to see turtles out there!
Tucca Swim’s collections are made from ECONYL®, a regenerated and recycled nylon made up of 78% recycled polyamide and 22% elastane. All ink used in the digital printing process is OEKO-TEX® approved and are water-based, meaning they are also Eco-Friendly.
Within the sustainable swimwear industry, the term ‘ocean waste’ is commonly used to describe what the Eco-Friendly fabric is made from. This term is very misleading as whilst a small percentage is made from ocean waste, it is also made from industrial plastic from landfills, fabric scraps and other items such as carpet flooring. The reason we do not use the term ‘ocean waste’, although this does sound more attractive to consumers, is to be as transparent as possible to you.
