The Recycled High-Waisted Bikini

The Recycled High-Waisted Bikini

Wow, where to start?

The bottoms are high-waisted, and the top has removable pads. Both come with a tear-away care label. These features make this swimsuit both comfortable AND flattering on many different body types.

Plus, this swimsuit is made from eco friendly fabric, which is not just beneficial for the environment but super soft to the touch, making you feel good on both the inside and out. Our high waisted bikini is made from at least 80% recycled polyester and elastane.

What is recycled polyester?

Recycled polyester (rPET for short) is a fabric that’s produced from synthetic fibers. Recycled polyester is produced by recycling existing materials (like plastic bottles and packaging) but still has all the characteristics and performance as a regular polyester, making it a more sustainable fabric alternative.

How’s recycled polyester made?

Recycled polyester is made by crushing plastic products into small pieces. These small pieces are then processed into yarn, transformed into a fiber, and in the end—made into a fabric.

What are the advantages of recycled polyester?

Producing rPet takes 33% to 53% less energy than creating polyester from scratch. Also, rPet produces approximately 54.6% fewer CO2 emissions to the air than virgin polyester

By using recycled materials to make things like this High-Waisted Bikini, we're ensuring that at least some of the plastic waste produced in this consumer centric society doesn’t end up in landfills.
