What’s big and blue and full of plastic? And what’s the answer? Introducing the Parley Swimming Collection, made of ECONYL® regenerated yarn.
Take something bad. Make something good
There are trillions of pieces of plastic and all-life threatening polymers to get out of the ocean. So here’s how to turn nylon waste into a high performance Parley Swimming Collection.
1 - Fish it out
First you want to fish out those sweet smelling fishing nets, discarded carpets, plastic components and fabric scraps from oceans around the world through a global network of NGOs and ocean warriors.
2 - Strip it down
Next, strip the waste back to its nylon base through a mechanical, chemical and almost spiritual purification process.
3 - Build it up
Now simply regenerate the raw materials into Econyl® nylon yarn, a fibre that can be regenerated infinitely without any loss in quality or performance.
4 - Pull it together
Weave the Econyl® regenerated yarn together into pretty patterns to produce a high performance, durable fabric. Take a moment to marvel at this nylon renaissance. This is life saving recycling.
5 - Make it matter
The world’s top swimmers know it. Anyone who trains in the ocean knows it. You know it. Recycled must become the must-have to persuade all companies to follow. Spread the word to the world.
The bottom line is, it’s time to bend that spoon. Save those whales. Don’t dumb it down, intelligence it up. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. The future is on us all.
“When I’m not training in the ocean, I work to protect it as part of a marine clinic educating others on the impact of pollution.
Even the smallest ripples of change matter, so for our future athletes, the time is now.”
