ECO NEVER FELT SO GOOD

Earlier this month we collaborated with our friends over at Eco Stardust to show you JUST how good environmentally friendly fashion and beauty choices make you feel... and look! With biodegradable glitter and fully recyclable packaging, and catsuits using recycled fabrics, you can absolutely have it all this festival season, without it costing the earth!


Read on below to find out all about the catsuits and glitters in the video, and exactly what makes them eco!

Eco-Lycra Catsuits

We've recently discovered a whole new kind of fabric that is just as durable as our past high-quality Lycra base, except this time, it's made from recycled waste plastic like bottles, old fishing nets and carpet fluff to name just a few! It's also twice as resistant to chlorine and suncream for those beach babies. We are shifting over to this new eco life Lycra wherever possible, and you'll see more and more of it in collections to come.

The companies making waves in the Lycra industry are able to reduce the Global Warming Potential of making nylon (the fibre used to create Lycra) by up to 80%, saving 70,000 barrels of oil per 10,000 tons, vast amounts of water, and making a huge difference for our future in recycling waste materials into brand new yarns! 
Our black life Lycra, that you can see in our BFF high waisted leggings, is made using a mix of 78% Econyl (which is made from 100% recycled plastics) and 22% Lycra. Econyl has recycled over 10 billion plastic bottles into the fabric in the past 10 years.

Want to see the actual process happening? 


Our white print base lycra (seen in our Joan Collins collection and eco swimwear) is made, predominantly, from the recycled fishing net (other reused fibres include soft carpet). 

Approximately 640k tons of fishing nets are discarded in the ocean each year, making up 1/10 of all marine waste. These nets stay in the sea and affect the ecosystem for hundreds of years and are deadly for whales, turtles and other sea creatures. It's super important that we address this, and on top of this, work towards positive ways to use all these waste plastics, instead of throwing them into landfill or burning them, once they are no longer useful in their original form.

A team called The Healthy Seas take divers out to collect waste nets in North, Mediterranean and the Adriatic Sea, which are then taken to be cleaned, processed and melted down in a recycling plant and turned into yarn. Then, they travel to Italy where they take on a new life as the Lycra you know and love!


Keeping the eco spirit the whole way through, when printing our colourful designs, there's no water used. Usually, the dyeing process can waste huge amounts of water (making one pair of Levis uses 505 gallons for example), so by reducing this where possible, our CatsuitsLeggings and Bodies are a great choice for those of you who want to shop consciously and save the planet while feeling and looking amazing!
