1% TO HEALTHY SEAS - JOURNEY FROM WASTE TO WEAR
When purchasing our items, you are giving back to Healthy Seas. 1% of OHOY sales goes to support the recovery of abandoned fishing nets by volunteer divers.
We use ECONYL®️yarn coming from discarded nylons including fishing nets collected from the sea and other plastics.
ECONYL®️ is made through a revolutionary process of recovering fishing nets and other nylon waste from oceans and landfills that then gets regenerated into its original, pure nylon form, Using a recycled material reduces waste and pollution in the environment but also cuts down the needs for raw materials and crude oil used in the production of nylon.
ECONYL®️ is twice as resistant to chlorine, sun creams, and oils than most other fabrics. and sun protection rating of 50 + SPF
We have a few suits in our range that are not fully econyl ( the linning is) but the outer layer is sourced in Italy and are Oeko-Tex which means:
More transparency for more sustainable future. Oeke tex Standard 100 fabrics that have been certified free from hazardous chemicals
Our sunshine hats are made from Oeko-Tex cotton and treated in heavy bees wax.
As we continue to grow and expand our product range, we are comitted to always finding the most environmentally friendly option down to the smallest detail.
