VIVI-KINI is made from ECONYL® regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion
Each year there are estimated 640,000 tons of fishing gear lost or abandoned in the ocean, making up 10% of all marine litter. These ghost nets tremendously hurt the environment by accidental capturing whales, turtles, sharks or other sea-creatures, resulting in killing millions and threatening shallow coral reefs each year.
Ghost fishing organizations like Healthy Seas recover such nets and prevent the waste ending up in our marine ecosystem.
These nets are then turned into virgin-quality nylon yarn by ECONYL®, which additionally reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with material made from crude oil.
VIVI-KINI swimwear is made from regenerated ECONYL® yarn because we strongly believe in raising awareness and reducing the environmental impact on planet earth.
VIVI-KINI will donate 3% of each piece sold to rePATRN in Ghana to close the circle and to support turning waste problems into "infinite possibilities".
