Swimsuits made from recycled fishing gear and plastic bottles

Swimwear companies across Canada are embracing recycled fabrics for their new beachwear and fashion lines. Swimwear is conventionally made from synthetic materials such as plastic, to ensure that the material is water-resistant and flexible. By using recycled plastics from fishing gear and bottles, these sustainable swimsuits can maintain these qualities. They also have the added benefit of being resistant to UV rays, chlorine, and saltwater and diverting plastic waste from the ocean that poses a risk to wildlife.
