THE TELEGRAPH – Sustainable swimwear? The best brands using ocean waste to create stylish suits
By Victoria Moss
I don’t know about you, but my plastic guilt is is racking up. Buying a takeaway iced coffee feels tantamount to chain smoking outside a maternity unit. And with looming holidays, near pretty oceans, which as we all now know (thanks, Attenborough) are full of nasty little plastic beads and who knows what, I feel awkward about popping myself on a err, plastic lilo and taking advantage of those cooling lapping waves, full of fish choking to death on our detritus.
Ladies, may I introduce you to a yarn called ECONYL® which very cleverly is formed from oceanic waste material – fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic.
