New partner Girlfriend Collective joins Healthy Seas

25 September 2018

We are excited to welcome Girlfriend Collective on board the growing list of companies who support the mission of Healthy Seas. They will be donating 1% from every purchase of their new sustainable line to our work.

Girlfriend Collective is based in Seattle, Washington, and focuses on the production of minimal, luxurious, and eco-friendly active-wear. Part of their new collection is a sports bra and leggings set, made with ECONYL® yarn, which makes Girlfriend Collective one of the many garment designers and producers who use ECONYL® fibers to follow a more sustainable approach to fashion.

Co-founders of Ellie and Quang Dinh had this to say about our partnership: “Healthy Seas’s mission and impact resonated with us as a tangible way to do something about the ocean plastic epidemic. We represent a collective of women who care about our environment and want to do something to help preserve it; we understood partnering with Healthy Seas would help us do our part to make the world a better place.”

After the fishing nets are collected by Healthy Seas’ divers and fishermen, they are transported for cleaning to Nofir A.S and to Aquafil for regeneration into ECONYL® yarn. Healthy Seas is an open initiative which is developed using the learning-by-doing approach. We are open to creative ideas and new partners!
