Beginning Boutique of Australia has released a seven-piece sustainable swimwear collection made from recycled fishing nets and plastic bottles.
Marketed under the label 9.0 Swim, the fabric is made from recycled nylon yarn made from discarded non-biodegradable waste.
“Our swimwear is not only sustainable but also long-wearing, without compromising on style and comfort,” said Sarah Timmerman, CEO and founder of Beginning Boutique.
“This will be the first of many environmentally-conscious collections and we are excited to pioneer our own efforts and set the example for other Australian brands.”
Available only online from the company’s website , the collection is priced from A$39.99 (US$29).
Meanwhile, Beginning Boutique is also developing an expanded Conscious clothing range slated for launch next year. Under its ‘BB Better: For The Planet’ initiative, Beginning Boutique donates 1 per cent of all sales to its charity partners, Greenfleet and Stars Foundation.
