Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good: Recycled Fabrics Breathe New Life Into Swimwear

The fashion industry has a responsibility to address its environmental impact, and swimwear is no exception. While traditional production methods create strain on resources and contribute to waste, there's a growing movement toward sustainable solutions and recycled fabrics are leading the way. Let's explore how "Always Sunshine Somewhere" is turning waste into wearable sunshine.


Reclaiming Waste, Redefining Fashion:

The problem of textile waste is undeniable. Discarded clothing, including synthetic materials, often ends up in landfills or polluting the environment. Recycled fabrics tackle this problem head-on by transforming pre- and post-consumer waste, like plastic bottles and fishing nets, into high-quality materials ready for a second life.

"Seeing the problem of plastic pollution firsthand inspired us to act. Recycled fabrics might be a small step, but it's a step towards a more responsible fashion industry and a cleaner planet."

Digital Printing: A Cleaner, Greener Process

We're committed to sustainable practices at every step, which is why we choose digital printing. This innovative technology offers several environmental benefits over traditional textile printing:

  • Reduced Water Usage: Digital printing consumes significantly less water a precious resource.

  • Lower Chemical Consumption: Fewer dyes and chemicals are used, minimising pollution.

  • On-Demand Printing: Precise production means less fabric waste and overstock.

Zero Waste, Zero Worries (and Zero Paper Tags!)

Minimising waste is our goal! That's why we use digital marker-making software to optimise fabric usage.

Beyond Recycled Paper? No Paper at All!

Even recycled paper uses resources. We decided to go paperless and eliminate swing tags and paper branding. We're happy to share those savings with you and create a lighter environmental footprint.
