Koru Swimwear to use fabric made from recycled fishing net

The initial phase of Healthy Seas has focused mainly on activities in the North Sea pilot region and resulted in recovering 20 tons of fishing nets.

In 2014, Healthy Seas is still looking to cooperate with other ongoing initiatives. An example of such cooperation is Healthy Seas joining forces with the manufacturer of sustainable swimming gear in New Zealand Koru Swimwear.

Koru Swimwear began with an idea to provide eco-friendly swimwear for women who seek quality, function, fashion-forward trends, and a sense of environmental responsibility.

Designers, Julie Brockmeyer Stine and April Slater, wanted to incorporate eco-friendly fabrics and responsible textile manufacturing processes to swimwear for both sport and leisure.

Thanks to Healthy Seas and Aquafil, recovered ghost fishing nets are transformed and regenerated into Aquafil’s ECONYL yarn, which makes it possible for Koru Swimwear to market unique sustainable fashionable articles in a socially responsible way.

Koru Swimwear joins Healthy Seas’ journey from waste to wear by donating 1% of their revenue through one percent for the planet.
