SUSTAINABILITY

YOUR NEW BIKINI IS HELPING TO RECOVER OUR OCEANS.

Welcome to paradise. Since 2015, Don't Blow It Co. has been using an Italian made eco-conscious fabric that is composed of 78% ECONYL® (a re-polymerized fibre that is made of 100% post-consumer recycled materials) and 22% Xtra Life LYCRA. These recycled materials consist of fishing nets, carpets and plastic that have been removed from the worlds oceans through several eco-initiatives including the Healthy Seas project and Net-Works™. All recycled materials used are recovered, cleaned and re-polymerised into a new fibre. The fibre has the same characteristics as virgin polyamide guaranteeing top quality and giving our garments a smoother, softer feel with greater fit and shape retention compared to other swimwear fabrics. You can learn more about the whole process here

Our sustainable fabrics are then imported to the US of A for printing and laser cutting. With visual stimulus being the focal point of our collections, all of our vivid photographic prints are produced through the use of dye sublimation printing. This digital printing technique provides less of a negative environmental impact compared to most other printing methods (learn more about this here). The printing process reduces water and ink pollution by eliminating the liquid stage of dyeing/printing as well as through the use of organic printing inks. The images are printed on to transfer paper or directly onto our fabrics, where heat is then used to transfer dye onto the fabric and molecularly bonds the image to our swimwear.

And voila ! An eco-conscious, structurally-sound and stellar bikini is born.
