Sustainably Made Swimwear - REPREVE®
Here at Tide + Seek we want to help make a difference to reduce the amount of plastic bottles that go into landfills every year.
All plastic bottles labeled with #1 on the bottom have the same chemistry make-up as polyester known as PET (polyethylene terephthalate) allowing plastic bottle flakes to be transformed into fabric perfect for swimwear.
REPREVE® is a polyester fibre made of 100% recycled plastic, comprised mostly of post-consumer plastic bottles. On top of that, the production of the fabric offsets the use of new petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases, while conserving water and energy throughout the process.
The REPREVE® fabric used within all of Tide + Seek's products is chlorine resistant with a UV protection of factor 50. The quality of the fabric is good, it's hard to believe that you are actually wearing recycled plastic bottles!
By supporting brands that use REPREVE® as well as other types of recycled fabrics you are making a difference to the future we will live in.
