Do You Know What You're
SWIMWEAR HAS BECOME RIFE WITH SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS BECAUSE OF DEVELOPMENTS IN RECYCLED NYLON.
WHEN CANDICE SWANEPOEL started working on her swimwear line Tropic of C, which launched earlier this year, she wasn't on a mission to make it sustainable. "At first, I wasn't really planning to make the brand sustainable," said Swane-poel. "I started making the brand sus-tainable through the packaging because I began feeling fed up when I would receive product wrapped in plastic. I started wanting my brand to be very conscious of that. Once we started research on pack-aging it kind of felt natural to see what else was available. That's how I found out. about Econyl." Tropic of C is one of many modern, chic swimwear brands that use Econyl, a fabric made from regenerated nylon that is rescued from things like fishing nets, car-pets and plastic landfills and remade into textiles for apparel and carpets.
