Our Eco Friendly Swimwear Fabric Range
INTRODUCING ECOLAST+ FABRIC
Our Sustainable Swim Fabric
Our mission for sustainable swimwear continues with Ecolast+™. Introduced into our Swimwear range in 2019, Ecolast+™ is a sustainable eco-fabric made with REPREVE yarn, a high quality fibre produced from 100% recycled post consumer plastic bottles. 2 plastic bottles go into every Ecolast+ swimsuit and 6 bottles in every metre of swimwear fabric! Ecolast+™ provides optimal stretch & shape retention and has 4 X greater fabric compression that traditional swimwear fabrics. Not only is Ecolast+™ great for the environment, it’s 100% chlorine proof and has UPF50+ sun protection! Seriously, we are so confident that our fabric is 100% chlorine proof that we offer a lifetime guarantee, meaning we’ll replace any suit that wears out*. Available in a variety of great designs and colours, you quite simply can’t go wrong.
*Excluding damage caused by improper use.
From post consumer plastic bottles to swimwear
POST CONSUMER WASTE
Post consumer plastic bottles are prepared for recycling.
The post consumer plastic bottles are then taken to the recycling plant where it is processed into reusable fibre yarn.
SPUN INTO YARN
The fibre yarn is then knitted into ECOLAST+ Fabric
The fabric is then printed, cut and sewn into ZOGGS ECOLAST+ Swimwear
BEYOND THE POOL
Being Aussie means we pretty much love everything to do with the water. We believe the best way to fall in love with swimming is to make sure you have fun, whether you’re a beachgoer, lane swimmer or open water adventurer.
Available in over 50 countries, our swimwear, goggles, swimming aids and training accessories are made to stand up to the Australian sun, sea and swimming pools. Because if they make the grade in Australia, we’re pretty sure they’ll do the same anywhere else in the world! You’ll find our products for sale online, on the high street and in more sports and leisure centres than you can take a dip at!
Outside the lanes we’re taking action. Our mission is to reduce our impact as a business on the environment. From greener packaging, to recycled swimwear and supporting various environmental causes, we believe in doing everything we can to preserve our oceans for the future.
“We’re passionate about the ocean and excited about doing what we can to make a difference.”
