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.

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.
