In our ongoing efforts to address the impacts of our raw materials sourcing, we’re continually looking for ways to eliminate the sourcing of virgin raw materials. Similar to our partnership with Repreve® that introduced recycled polyester to our products, our partnership with ECONYL® introduced their 100% regenerated Nylon yarn made using waste material instead of fossil raw material into our Simply Solid Swimwear line beginning in 2017.
ECONYL® yarn is produced by recycling fishing nets and other discarded nylons. The recovered nets are regenerated and converted into fibers that can once again be used, but now for a new life. There is no loss of quality in the regeneration process and the end result is a yarn that, on its own, is 100% recyclable.
