ECONYL® is a revolutionary yarn that is made from recycled nylon waste, such as fishing nets and industrial plastic waste, that would otherwise end up polluting our oceans and harming marine life.
ECONYL® is made using a closed-loop production process, which means that the materials are recycled and repurposed in a sustainable and circular way. Here's how it works:
- The first step is to collect waste materials, such as fishing nets and industrial plastic waste, from various sources.
- The waste materials are then cleaned and processed to remove any impurities or contaminants.
- Next, the materials are transformed into a nylon polymer using a chemical process called depolymerization. This process breaks down the waste materials into their basic components and converts them into a high-quality nylon material.
- Finally, the nylon polymer is spun into yarn and used to create a wide range of products, including swimwear.
At Understatement, we are proud to use ECONYL® yarn in our swimwear production. By choosing our products you are contributing to a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry.
- Reduces waste: By using ECONYL®, we are repurposing waste that would have otherwise ended up in landfills or oceans.
- Conserves resources: ECONYL® is a closed-loop fabric, meaning it can be infinitely recycled without losing its quality.
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions: ECONYL® production generates fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional nylon production, leading to a lower carbon footprint.
- Protects marine life: By repurposing nylon waste, ECONYL® helps to reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans and protect marine life from harm.
- Improves water quality: ECONYL® production uses less water than traditional nylon production, which helps to conserve water resources and reduce water pollution.
ECONYL® is a great choice for anyone looking for eco-friendly, high-quality swimwear that looks and feels great. By choosing our swim collection you can make a positive impact on the environment and enjoy a stylish and comfortable swimwear that will last for many seasons to come.
