Here at Zoggs we're passionate about the ocean and protecting our world for the future. Our Ecolast™ swimwear transforms debris that's damaging our oceans into high performance swimwear made with ECONYL® yarn. Beginning life as plastic waste, which would otherwise cause damage to our planet, abandoned ghost fishing nets, carpet and industrial waste is rescued from the oceans and saved from landfill, through different initiatives such as The ECONYL® Reclaiming Program, The Healthy Seas initiative, and Net-Works™.
Our Ecolast™ fabric is made using 78% ECONYL® yarn and 22% LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ creating a soft, comfortable, high performance swimwear fabric. We've put this fabric through its paces in real life conditions and it outperformed our competitors’ fabrics, proving to be 15 times more resilient to chlorine than standard swimwear fabrics.
Ecolast™ swimwear is available to purchase now so you can be one of the first to wear it! We've picked a few of our women's styles for this summer with men's and Junior styles also available in Ecolast™. You can browse the initial Ecolast™ swimwear collection on our website. All made from our new environmentally friendly and sustainable fabric, created from recycled ocean plastic.
