A warm welcome to our new partner Noma Swimwear, an environmentally conscious brand committed to helping the environment and using the regenerated ECONYL® yarn. The fishnets collected by Healthy Seas are brought into the ECONYL® regeneration system, in which they are transformed into new, high-quality nylon yarn.
“Noma Swimwear is delighted to support Healthy Seas. With the latest estimates suggesting that 58% of ocean plastics is abandoned fishing gear and that 640,000 tonnes per annum are being dumped in the ocean, the work of Healthy Seas in cleansing our oceans has never been more important. Noma Swimwear is proud to offer a new life and truly useful purpose for waste fishing gear, and with a pilot re-recycling initiative, hopes to keep regenerating infinitely this synthetic yarn and avoid it ending up as waste again. From the oceans, into the oceans, out of the oceans.” said Sarah Stafford, Founder of Noma Swimwear.
Noma Swimwear now also joins our fight against deadly ghost nets and donates to Healthy Seas 1% after every purchase.
“There is something very satisfying about taking ghost nets out of the sea and turning it into a swimsuit which someone can then use to swim in a cleaner sea. We are very excited to welcome Noma Swimwear on board for Healthy Seas!”, said Veronika Mikos, project coordinator of Healthy Seas.
