SUSTAINABILITY

 

Zazi Swim are very serious when it comes to sustainable practices within the fashion industry. Our swimwear is made from recycled nylon using ECONYL sourced from abandoned fishing nets . We want to create luxurious and beautiful pieces while ensuring our impact on the planet is minimal. We want to open up a conversation about the impact of fashion on the environment and are committed to helping drive change.

FABRIC

Our material is made from ECONYL, which uses regenerated nylon containing waste such as fishing nets and other post consumer products. This Nylon is recovered from all over the world and turned into yarn in Italy. ECONYL has enabled Zazi Swim to make sustainable swimwear and shares their mission in reducing waste. It’s crazy to think that for every tonne of fishnets being regenerated, over 10,000 swimsuits will be made. This also saves natural resources and reduces global warming impacts of nylon by up to 80 percent. ECONYL has a focus on manufacturing products that are endlessly regenerable and we at Zazi Swim love this!

PACKAGING

We are very mindful of our footprint on the earth so we use compostable and biodegradble packaging. Our poly bags are made from corn starch which means the bags will break down easily and can go in your compost. We also use mailers and mailer boxes that are made from recycled cardboard and paper, secured with biodegradable sticky tape, ensuring zero plastic use. Lastly, our cotton tote bags are made from 100 per cent recycled cotton. So not only do you have a pretty bag to store your swimmers in, you have helped give new life to old cotton.

LABELS AND LINERS

Our hang tags are made from recycled paper, which reduces the demand for new materials. Our hygiene liners are made from biodegradable adhesive paper. This means they are a lot more delicate then your regular plastic liner because they're biodegradable.

 

THE FUTURE

Every bit counts when it comes to waste, so our goal at Zazi Swim is to have zero. Our future goal is to recycle our swimwear where we can and always focus on new and exciting ways to reduce.
